Hello Everyone!

I will be serving on Africa Mercy in April/May 2018. I just had a quick question... what is the food like on board? I have a lot of food sensitivities so I am just wondering what I need to prepare for. If I need to prepare my own food, what is the kitchen onboard equipped with and what is the grocery shopping situation like in Douala? 

Thanks so much,

    Hey, Alyssa!

    ​Thanks for making the decision to serve with us. I am not sure what type of sensitivities you struggle with, but here is a myMercy discussion addressing several types of food sensitivies, how Mercy Ships seeks to accomodate them, and the foods available onboard. You can check it out here.

    ​I hope this helps! We look forward to seeing you onboard soon.

    Best Regards,
