“But I’m also going to serve [during] my time there and I’m gonna prepare meals, and I’m gonna cook for the victims affected {and} for the volunteers there," Dixon said. "I’m just gonna bring everything I have. You know, I learned so much when Mercy Chefs came here to Hattiesburg and helped so many of our residents when I was able to work with them for a couple of weeks. So, those things that I was able to learn working with Mercy Chefs here in Hattiesburg, I am going to bring and be able to cook for as many as we can serve.”
