Wednesday, more than 40 Chick-fil-A restaurants, including two near Vinings (at Cumberland Mall and on Akers Mill Road), will feed nearly 5,500 at-risk children in Atlanta spread out over half of the city.

Partnering with Marietta-based MUST Ministries, the eateries will feed children who are on free or reduced lunch programs during the school year. MUST delivers daily during the summer lunches consisting of peanut butter or bologna sandwiches, often the only meal these children may get. Wednesday’s lunch will include a Chick-fil-A sandwich, Lay’s potato chips and a chocolate chunk cookie.  

This is something each Chick-fil-A franchise owner is doing on his or her own, and Chick-fil-A’s corporate headquarters in College Park is not making the donations. Individual restaurants are getting involved in several ways, including providing a "cow" to a delivery site, allowing team members to work at the distribution site and putting lunches directly into the kids’ hands.
