“Wheels Bringing Meals” Effort Helps People in Need
Two northwest businesses are teaming up to help residents during the COVID-19 pandemic. Chick-fil-A of Maple Grove and Kurth’s Auto Repair in New Hope are partnering together to offer free meals to families in need. They’re calling the program “Wheels Bringing Meals.”
“Chick-fil-A Maple Grove is always looking for ways to help our community, especially during challenging times. We are grateful for the opportunity to be able to help,” said Nancy Christman, owner of Chick-fil-A Maple Grove.
Chick-fil-A Maple Grove is covering the cost of the meals and Kurth’s Auto Repair is delivering the food.
“We love helping the public servants: the military, police, doctors, nurses, health care workers. We’re also looking to help those families that are in need,” said Calvin Smith, vice president of Kurth’s Auto Repair. “The people that have lost their jobs and are trying to figure out how to make ends meet, who aren’t getting unemployment yet,”
April 14 is the first delivery. The Wheels Bringing Meals effort plans to hand out 89 meals. Folks will get a chicken sandwich, chips and a cookie.
Deliveries are every Tuesday from 4:30 p.m to 6:30 p.m. They restrict service to a six-mile radius from the New Hope auto repair shop. The Wheels Bringing Meals registration cut-off is Mondays at noon.
