Several Texas Chick-fil-A restaurants operated on Sunday (Dec. 27) to provide meals for flood victims. The Christian Post reports the Christian-owned business does not typically open its doors on Sundays, but broke this rule to cook food for those affected by deadly tornadoes and floods in the Texas.
At least 11 people died in the storms and numerous homes and buildings have been destroyed. Chick-fil-A donated meals to victims as well as volunteer rescue workers.
Facebook user Jared Guynes wrote, "This morning Chick-fil-A is breaking their own rule and cooking on a Sunday. For the best reason possible, to help feed those first responders and people in need affected by last night's tornadoes."
Chick-fil-A spokesperson Amanda Hannah clarified that the restaurants were not open to the public.
"The locations were not open to the public, but team members from various restaurants in the area did volunteer to prepare and distribute free food to responders and others affected by the tornadoes — serving those in need during this tragic event,” she said.
