Feeding Nashville Tornado Victims - Irlene Mandrell / Mercy Chefs - How you Can Help!
Ilene Mandrell gave of her time and talents on Sunday (3/8) to help feed Nashville tornado victims after last week's devastating tornados that killed 25 people and destroyed numerous homes and businesses.
Teaming with Mercy Chefs, Mandrell and many others helped to make food to be delivered to those in need. They served 20,400 meals in Nashville during a five day period. Mercy Chefs' team deployed and was on site within 24 hours of the disaster, traveling from Virginia (where our headquarters is located), Oklahoma, Texas, and Alabama.
Mercy Chefs served from Murrell School on the edge of destruction where 98% of the students receive free and reduced lunch. From there, they delivered meals to North Nashville, East Nashville, Donelson and Mount Juliet.
