WORKERS at McDonald’s and KFC gave free food to Ukrainians who were heroic against the might of Russian military forces.
Fast food chains have closed since the President of Russia Vladimir Putin ordered his troops to invade on February 24.
But both companies have been showing their support for Ukraine on social media and ramping up their efforts as the fierce battle continues – as well as keeping their employees safe.
McDonald’s announced on February 27 they will donate food to local councils so it can then be distributed to those in need.
The donation will include items that do not need to be cooked, such as water, vegetables, fruit, rolls and salads.
KFC has also made a similar move, although the Kentucky-based company will focus more on helping soldiers.
The franchise operation opened its kitchen on February 26 to prepare food for those in need, especially for the military, territorial defense and hospitals.
A company post on social media said: “There are a lot of hungry people outside the cities, and they need our help.”
KFC is also calling on other restaurants across the country to open their kitchens and join in to help prepare food for those in need.
“We are one big family now, helping each other without hesitation!” KFC wrote.
