LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) - Mercy Chefs, Virginia-based disaster relief and humanitarian aid organization, says they have deployed to Lake Charles to provide meals to the community after this week’s severe flooding that caused loss of life and dangerous conditions.

“Lake Charles Mayor Nic Hunter reached out to us after the flooding and said the community could use our help feeding those impacted by the flooding,” said Gary LeBlanc, founder of Mercy Chefs. “We were in Lake Charles twice in 2020 following Hurricanes Laura and Delta, and it is our honor to return now to serve a community that is so close to our hearts.”

Mercy Chefs will be providing free meals on Saturday, May 22, 2021.

The meals will be available from noon until 2 p.m. at the Living Word Christian Center on 1701 Ryan St.
