Our team is closely watching Hurricane Nicole which is expected to make landfall as a Category 1 hurricane on the east coast of Florida tonight into tomorrow.

As you know, Florida just felt the full force of Hurricane Ian, one of the largest hurricanes to make landfall here in America. Governor DeSantis has already issued a state of emergency in Florida in anticipation of Hurricane Nicole.

Our Mercy Chefs team is currently preparing for any possible deployment from our "Storehouse" logistics center in Alabama, which is within about a day's drive of where most hurricanes and tornados hit the continental U.S. We are readying our mobile kitchens and other support vehicles, while preparing other resources used on the ground.

This approaching storm comes as our team was already preparing for a return to Fort Myers, where Mercy Chefs will be providing thousands of Thanksgiving dinners to the folks there who are still recovering from Ian.

Please continue to pray for the people of Florida. And thanks for partnering with Mercy Chefs.

God bless,

Gary LeBlanc, Mercy Chefs
