Local KFC Franchisee Organization Provides Hot Meals For Chattanooga Children

Tuesday, April 7, 2020

Local KFC Franchisee, JAK Foods Inc., is partnering with Chattanooga-based We Over Me to provide a hot meal for underprivileged children who are typically reliant on school lunches to provide nutrition every day, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and local school closures during this time. 
 
Starting Monday,  KFC and We Over Me began delivering 100 boxes of hot meals to five different leaning centers. Each learning center sponsors 10-15 schools in the local Chattanooga area.  
 
This community giveback will be happening at the following locations:  

•   Monday - Harrison Bay Learning Center; Meal Distribution Site: Olivet Nation Church (4872 Jersey Pike. Chattanooga, Tn. 37416) 
 
•  Tuesday - Missionary Ridge Learning Center - Meal Distribution Site: Jones Memorial UMC (4131 Ringgold Road, Chattanooga, Tn. 37412)  
 
•  Wednesday - Opportunity Zone Learning Center - Meal Distribution Site: Inner Peace Church (2125 Tunnel Blvd. City/State: Chattanooga, Tn. 37406) 
 
• Thursday - Rock Point Learning Center; Meal Distribution Site: Rivermont Presbyterian (3319 Hixson Pike, Chattanooga, Tn. 37415) –  
 
•  Friday - North River Learning Center; Meal Distribution Site: Northside Neighborhood House (10161 Dayton Pike, Soddy-Daisy, Tn. 37379) 
 
KFC also announced that it is providing one million pieces of chicken to its nationwide workforce by shipping every KFC in the U.S. additional chicken supply – at no cost – to be able to give back to their local communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. This follows a recent donation to $400,000 to Blessings in a Backpack, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that works to provide pre-packed meals for children who might otherwise go hungry due to school closures.

Roy Exum: My Garden This June

On this, the first day of a new month, I pause during my monthly trip to the garden as I mourn for my country.

By this I mean we were helpless to the virus – there was no way to stop it and therefore we must endure. Criminal rioting is altogether different. ... (click for more)
