The people in Greensboro, North Carolina know Amy Murphy as the chicken lady. It helps her stand out in the crowd every Monday when she serves a hot meal to the homeless in town, which she’s been doing for years.
Murphy says she was nervous about asking the manager at a fried chicken restaurant for unsold food when she first started. Blurting out that question got the manager on board with her idea. And now she has been picking up chicken from that restaurant ever since – and more restaurants have started donating their unsold food as well.
