KFC Serving Free Lunch for a Good Cause

Posted by Web Staff - Email | Facebook | Twitter

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The chicken chain is temporarily closing a Cleveland restaurant for a good cause.  For two hours, the restaurant on Carnegie Avenue will convert to a World Hunger Relief Kitchen for the day.

Residents from the Community Women's shelter will be served free Kentucky Grilled Chicken meals by Lake Erie Monsters players and mascot "Sully" and the restaurant's employees.

Several restaurants across the country are doing the same.

While KFC feeds the hungry every day, closing restaurants is a bold step in helping to raise money and awareness for World Hunger Relief.

As part of Yum! Brands global initiative to combat world hunger, KFCs across the country will be collecting donations for World Hunger Relief now through the end of the October.
