Masco Foods, franchise holders of KFC have donated over 5,000 KFC meals to street folks and the needy in 20 communities in Accra and Kumasi last Saturday.
This benevolence by KFC in providing food for the needy during this lockdown period is a step in the right direction; in solving the effect of the current epidemic that has affected the world and Ghana as well.
Due to the current lockdown, many street folks who would on a normal day get their daily bread from the street could not; as everyone is advised to stay home in order to minimize the spread of COVID 19.
As a result, KFC among other companies such as PolyTank have donated to help relieve the needy of their current lack.
In Accra for instance, people within the suburb of Chorkor, Korle-Bu Mortuary road, Accra Mall, 37, National Theatre, Mallam Atta market, Abofu, Achimota among others were privy to this kind gesture by KFC.
KFC received enormous distribution support from NGOs, Individuals and Ministry of Gender.
Reachout World Missions, Food for All, and Father Campbell helped in getting the food to these communities.
On Monday April 13, KFC is extending the food distribution to people of Asokwa, Kwadaso, Anloga, and Aboabo in Kumasi.
