If I were homeless, without a job, no spouse or kids, I would be sleeping there right now in line to get the free meals. In fact I might just quit my job, leave my family and home just to have a chance to get the free meals. Okay, just kidding but I do love me some Chick-fil-A! Also a good thing they are closed on Sundays. I could see the drive thru line being about a mile long right after the Hebron Church services end!
