Within just a few hours in April, the staff at Melody Magic Mart in Macon, Ga., distributed about 700 meals to anyone in need from the store’s parking lot. Partnering with distributor S&S Cafeterias, store owner Jay Patel said the giveaway was a necessary step for him to take as a member of the community, he told local news station WGXA. “A lot of people were happy that we were giving it away,” added employee Brian Thompson. “Something to take a load off of them.” Patel said this is the first time he has coordinated a giveaway this large, but he and his staff plan to continue to assist their community as the pandemic continues.
