Several hundred families received Purdue chicken tenders yesterday thanks to Kids of the Community, Second Harvest Food Bank and Warren County Schools.Almost 500 children were invited to receive the free chicken, but less than 100 showed up Saturday morning at West Elementary. That’s when volunteers started posting on Facebook and other websites the availability of the chicken for anyone with children in area schools. Slowly but surely, word got around and the chicken was distributed to those in need.Second Harvest provides a central distribution center for companies, groups and individuals who wish to help provide food for hungry people in Middle Tennessee.
