Volunteers from Krispy Krunchy Foods, a Lafayette, La.-based company, are preparing and delivering 10,000 Krispy Krunchy Chicken meals to the residents, emergency responders, and volunteers in the storm-ravaged area of Moore, Okla.
Representatives from Krispy Krunchy, including former Moore resident Jordan Lindsey, converged on the region from six markets and four states: Dallas and Houston, Texas; Shreveport and Alexandria, La.; Louisville, Ky.; and Chicago.
The relief effort started on Tuesday when volunteers began preparing meals and delivering meals, which will continue for three days or until the food supply is depleted. Reverend Wingfield, pastor of the First Christian Church where the food is being prepared, praised the work of the volunteers, calling it “a blessing” for the citizens of Moore.
“It is a privilege to give back in a meaningful way to people who are in need,” said Coordinator Richard Williams, the Krispy Krunchy Foods National Marketing Partner from Dallas. “The Krispy Krunchy staff working here in Moore has been nothing short of remarkable in preparing and serving these meals.”
Founder and President of Krispy Krunchy Foods, Neal Onebane of Lafayette, Louisiana, echoed Williams’ enthusiasm. “After having experienced so many disasters in south Louisiana and along our Gulf coast, it’s great to be able to give back. People from south Louisiana have a long history of generosity. When we faced our own disasters, others were there to assist us. I would like to thank Tyson Foods of Springdale, Arkansas, C. H. Guenther of San Antonio, Texas and Sysco Foods for their contributions,” he said.
