Farms team up to offer discounted chicken to families during COVID-19 pandemic
BRIDGEVILLE, Del. – During a time where food is scarce, Amick Farms partnered up with Evans Farms in Bridgeville to do their part to help. Offering a variety of chicken specials to the community with cars stretching back as far as the eye can see, with families waiting to get their hands on such a limited item.
“We had people lining up as early as 7:00 am, 7:30 am,” said event organizer, Katey Evans.
It was a sight like no other. Car after car after car, lined up to take advantage of a chicken sale they just couldn’t pass up.
“We’re offering chicken tenders and chicken wings in five-pound bags or 40-pound cases, and we’re offering boneless skinless chicken breast in 10-pound bags or 40-pound cases,” said Evans.
On Friday, Katey Evans and her team at Evans farms partnered with Amick Farms to offer pounds and pounds of chicken to customers at a discounted price. All in an effort to provide families with food that is so hard to get a hold of these days.
“These grocery stores locally are running out of chicken. It’s been on very limited supply,” said Evans.
With deals like offering chicken for a $1.80 a pound or less, Evans says these prices help people to be able to continue to provide food for families. Without breaking the bank.
“It’s really important that we are able to provide our customers with the savings right now especially because there’s been so many businesses that have been shut down and people out of work.”
And while it unsure just how long this pandemic will last Evans says she’ll continue to do what she can to help her community
