Kanye West is sharing his love for Chick-Fil-A with those in need, helping provide 300,000 meals to people in L.A. affected by the pandemic.

According to XXL, they’ve provided around 11,000 meals a day to people in Los Angeles since March, with the meals distributed by Dream Center, a nonprofit Christian organisation.

Speaking on the initiative, Dream Center founder Matthew Barnett described:

“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,” he continued. “This is what a neighborhood, a community, and a church should always look like.”

West has been a vocal supporter of Chick-Fil-A, even referencing the fast-food chain in his most recent album, on the track Closed on Sunday. 

In the past, the chain has come under fire for its opposition to same-sex marriage, even donating money to campaign groups. However, as of last year, the company has ceased these donations, turning its focus to social issues of education, homelessness, and hunger.

In other news, West recently reaffirmed that he would be once again voting for Donald Trump in this year’s US election in a recent interview with GQ.
