The McChicken® Project’s goal is simply to provide an inexpensive meal, a drink, and a blanket to the homeless.
A Seed was Planted
The McChicken® project grew from a sincere desire of some college friends that attend Loyola University Maryland to help feed the homeless of Baltimore. Instead of going out on a Friday night, four college roommates decided that it would be better to help the homeless.
Then it grew...
At first they fed a few homeless people inexpensive but nutritious McChicken® sandwiches. They were surprised by the gratefulness of the homeless. They went out again and this time they fed over 20 homeless people.
They were shocked by the need that seemed never ending. They decided to create a larger scale project to feed the homeless of Baltimore and to encourage other college student around the country to do the same. Thus was born the McChicken® Project.
