Kanye West previously referenced Chick-fil-A on his song titled ‘Closed on Sunday.’
Despite the spiritual references in Kanye West’s ‘Jesus is King,’ the multi-award-winning rapper still included a shout out to the religiously affiliated fast food chain, Chick-fil-A on ‘Closed on Sunday.’
Kanye West has partnered with Chick-fil-A to provide 300,000 meals during the coronavirus pandemic to those who are in need.
The charitable donations organized by Kanye West and Chick-fil-A will be distributed through the Dream Center. Dream Center is a Christian non-profit that serves America’s second-biggest school district in Los Angeles.
The Dream Center will reportedly be serving 11,000 dishes on a daily basis. This will include meals that will be delivered to elderly people quarantined in nursing facilities.
The Dream Center’s co-founder, Matthew Barnett, said:
The Los Angeles Dream Center has transformed into the Grand Central Station of food distribution and other basic essentials. I’m so grateful that our team has stayed healthy, and that we’ve found a safe way to meet the urgent needs within our community. I can’t say thank you enough to the various donors who’ve made this a reality. This is what a neighbourhood, a community, and a church should always look like.
The Chicago-bred rapper’s support for the food chain may look harmless and extremely helpful during this pandemic, but this didn’t come without controversy.
Kanye West was criticized for supporting the religiously affiliated food chain because it is connected to anti-gay marriage groups.
Apart from their love for religious fervor and chicken nuggets, Kanye West, and Chick-fil-A reportedly have something else in common- having a soft spot for the president of the United States, Donald Trump.
Kanye West is one of the several Hollywood celebrities that have taken action during the coronavirus pandemic to feed Americans.
Tyler Perry paid the grocery bills of several customers at over seventy supermarkets in Louisiana and Georgia. David Guetta recently raised over $700,000 for COVID-19 charity to provide food for people in need through this DJ set in Miami. In her hometown of Detroit, Lizzo sent lunch to ER workers. Leonardo DiCaprio, in a bid to assist low-income families, elderly and children who are dependent on school for meals, launched America’s Food Fund.
