CRAWFORDVILLE, Fla. (WTXL) — With the economic uncertainties from the coronavirus, we here at ABC 27 are shining a light on businesses that are doing their part to help out the community while keeping their business open.

A longtime staple in Crawfordville is offering home-cooking for hometown heroes, keeping the community fed and letting neighbor's know, "We're Open!"

From fried chicken to all the sides, family-owned Lindy's Chicken in Crawfordville is serving free meals for first responders.

It's the restaurant's way of giving back during the crisis and letting the community know, we're all in this together.

"My parents have always instilled in me that if you have the ability to help someone out, utilize that," said Cecil Robinson, the social media coordinator for Lindy's. "And so, I think its amazing that my parents have the ability to do this, but I think it just goes to show that this community is all about helping one another."

First responders have to show their ID in order to get their free food, a three-piece chicken tender meal.
