This is what Mary Brown's Chicken is doing to feed people in need in Canada
Mary Brown's Chicken is emerging as the Canadian fast-food hero that we all need amidst the COVID-19 outbreak.
The Newfoundland-based company is on a mission to deliver their iconic chicken to Canadians in need of help or a welcome pick-me-up during these difficult times.
So far, the lucky recipients of Mary Brown's chicken include essential front-line staff, healthcare workers, grocery store employees, first responders and shelters.
Speaking to Freshdaily, a spokeswoman for Mary Brown's said, "We understand that this is a difficult time across the board and we wanted to provide a little comfort (through food) to those who really need it."
"We know that every kind gesture no matter how small can make the world of a difference right now, so we're reaching out to quite a range of people who we think need a little extra comfort."
Mary Brown's aims to make two food drops every week.
