My team recently completed the latest online edition of "Surge" -- our QUARTERLY REPORT on Mercy Chefs' outreach efforts. Go here to access.

This is our most in-depth report to date, featuring important details on our massive deployment to Florida in response to Hurricane Ian. This deployment pushed our team to the limits, but day after day -- thanks to your support -- we served thousands of meals to those in need.

This issue of Surge also includes an overview of our deployment to Eastern Kentucky in response to the deadly flooding that claimed 38 lives, how you helped us bring relief in the midst of the Jackson (MS) water crisis, our deployment to Puerto Rico after Hurricane Fiona, and our ongoing mission to help the people of Ukraine.

Plus, there's a special, very heartwarming message from my wife and Mercy Chefs co-founder, Ann, on her encounter with a woman whose life was turned upside down due to Hurricane Ian.

I'm asking every Mercy Chefs friend to access this issue of Surge. Mercy Chefs is here because of YOU and I want you to see all that your support is making possible.

Thank you so much for your ongoing partnership, and God bless you,

Gary LeBlanc, Mercy Chefs
