Mercy Chefs serving in New York and LaPlace LA for Thanksgiving
From the Desk of Gary LeBlanc, founder of Mercy Chefs
I never anticipated that two of our Mercy Chefs mobile kitchens would be put into service this late in the season - and for an extended period of time. That left me with an extremely difficult decision. Serve Thanksgiving meals to the victims in New York - or New Orleans? Could we possibly do both? That question haunted me. The answer came when Mayor Andrew Hardwick of Freeport, NY called and asked me to work with the city's churches to feed those victims still housed in Freeport's emergency shelters. Many of them haven't had a good hot meal since Sandy struck.
