Christian hip-hop artist Kanye West works with Chick-Fil-A to provide free meals to people in need during the quarantine.
Kanye West’s association with Chick-Fil-A was made public when he mentioned the fast-food establishment in his song “Closed On Sunday.” As the global pandemic hit Los Angeles, the music icon partnered with the restaurant to serve those in need.
“Every morning I wake up and stand in the parking lot with our dedicated staff, I am blown away that day after day, week after week, there is enough food to provide to folks that need it,” the charity’s founder Matthew Barnett said. “The Los Angeles Dream Centre has transformed into the Grand Central Station of food distribution and other basic essentials … I can’t say thank you enough to the various donors who’ve made this a reality. This is what a neighborhood, a community, and a church should always look like.”
The 43-year-old artist’s wife Kim Kardashian has also joined in serving during this global crisis. She is working on providing face masks to hospitals through her shapewear line SKIMS. The mother of four also donated $1 million for the families stricken by COVID-19.
Kanye West shared that he and his wife are serving during this season to help heal those who are affected.
“The greatest thing for me, as someone who’s given their life to Christ, is knowing that other people have that as an anchor and a form of healing,” Kanye reflected. “Because you’re talking to a person that went to the hospital and back.”
