Texas: Chick-fil-A opens on Sunday to give out free food to flood victims

Several Texas Chick-fil-A restaurants operated last Sunday (Dec. 27) to provide meals for flood victims as the Christian-owned business broke from their typical schedule to cook food for those affected by deadly tornadoes and floods in the Texas.
At least 11 people died in the storms and numerous homes and buildings have been destroyed. Chick-fil-A donated meals to victims as well as volunteer rescue workers.

Facebook user Jared Guynes wrote, “This morning Chick-fil-A is breaking their own rule and cooking on a Sunday. For the best reason possible, to help feed those first responders and people in need affected by last night’s tornadoes.”

Chick-fil-A spokesperson Amanda Hannah clarified that the restaurants were not open to the public.
“The locations were not open to the public, but team members from various restaurants in the area did volunteer to prepare and distribute free food to responders and others affected by the tornadoes — serving those in need during this tragic event,” she said.
The popular chain closes on Sunday to honor their Christian roots, but AL.com noted that this is not the first time they’ve broken their schedule to help others: back in 2014, a Chick-fil-A location in Alabama distributed over 1,000 chicken sandwiches and biscuits to hundreds of people who were trapped by snow on the highways around Birmingham.
In early December, the owner of a Chick-fil-A in Tennessee teamed up with a local pastor to help purchase a minivan for a mother of two whose car caught on fire in the restaurant parking lot. The owner of the Chick-fil-A also donated $500 to the family.
