Chicken Salad Chick Supports Chattanooga Area Food Bank With Fundraiser

Monday, December 22, 2014

Chicken Salad Chick of Chattanooga recently donated over $6,000 to the Chattanooga Area Food Bank following their Coupon Book Campaign during Hunger Action Month in September.

Area Manager Jennifer Lawhorn and her team were committed to encouraging the sale of these Coupon Books in order to help fight local hunger. “It’s all about people helping people, giving back to the community and striving to make the world a better place today than it was yesterday,” stated Ms. Lawhorn.

The recently established Chicken Salad Chick Foundation partnered with select locations across the Southeast and presented guests with the opportunity to buy a $5 coupon book that included $75 of Chicken Salad Chick coupons. As a result of this campaign, the local Chattanooga restaurant was able to make a large donation that will be used in the operation of the CAFB’s feeding programs and will provide over 24,000 meals.

“Our guests were very eager to purchase the coupon books. It was truly a win-win,” said Josh Patton, owner of the Chattanooga area restaurants. ““We are excited about a continued partnership with the food bank to help many families in need.”
