Despite the fact that the Christian fast-food chain Chick-fil-A is notorious for being closed on Sundays, several Texas Chick-fil-A locations operated on Sunday to prepare and distribute free food to victims impacted by the deadly tornadoes that created havoc and destruction throughout the state.
After tornadoes and severe storms swept through the Dallas area over the weekend and killed as many as 11 people and damaged hundreds of buildings, Chick-fil-A employees from a number of stores northeast of Dallas opened the kitchens and volunteered their time to provide free food for first responders and victims of the natural disaster. Volunteers also delivered sandwiches to rescue workers and victims.
The humanitarian work of the Chick-fil-A restaurants was first publicized by Facebook user Jared Guynes who posted on Sunday about how the restaurant chain was breaking its own rule for the "best reason possible."

Pope Francis has warned that there will be "catastrophic" consequences for the planet unless global leaders agree on a plan to reduce the use of fossil fuels and tackle climate change.
"'Particular interests,' the pontiff insisted, should not be allowed to prevail over the common good in the fight against global warming and climate change," Crux reported on Francis' words at a U.N. campus in Nairobi, Kenya. "He also took an indirect shot at global warming skeptics, warning against 'manipulating information' to serve someone's 'plans and projects.'"
The Vatican leader's comments come just days ahead of the global climate change meeting that will take place Nov.30-Dec. 11 in Paris, where representatives from 194 countries will attend. more >>
