It was our pleasure to welcome Shelby Kemp of Royal Farms on with Nestor to discuss their recent initiatives to help their community during these trying coronavirus times.
“On May 1st, we donated a truck full of food to the Maryland Food Bank,” Kemp said. “It went really well, it was really positively received and we felt great doing it amidst this pandemic when so many people are in need. So we said why don’t we do this in every state in which we operate. On Friday May 8th we donated to the Delaware Food Bank, and on Tuesday May 12th we’re going to be donating to the New Jersey Food Bank. Later this week we’ll be donating to the Pennsylvania Food Bank and then again to the Virginia Food Bank. So we’ll be covering all five states in which we operate.”
In addition, Royal Farms is going above and beyond to support nurses during National Nurses Week. Obviously, this week takes on even more significance given the worldwide pandemic, and Royal Farms is stepping up to show their appreciation.
“May 6th through May 12th is National Nurses Week,” Kemp said. “Nurses are always hard working but especially during this pandemic, they are really putting forth a lot. We wanted to find a way to give back to them, and we thought a great way to do that would be to give away a free pulled chicken sandwich on May 11th and May 12th. All nurses need to do is show their ID at the register and they’ll get that free pulled chicken sandwich. We have some new flavors, the Tennessee smoke and the Carolina BBQ.”
We’d like to thank Shelby and all the folks at Royal Farms for their support of our community as well as their long-term partnership with WNST and Baltimore Positive.
