This lady wears many hats, but one in particular stands out.
Amy Murphy is known by her Greensboro, North Carolina, community as “The Chicken Lady,” because she serves up poultry to people in need, all while wearing a funky hat to match. “It’s the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done,” she told Fox 8 News. “It just feels right.”
Murphy first earned her nickname in 2013, when she asked the owner of a local Church’s -- a fried chicken restaurant chain -- for leftover food to distribute to the city’s needy, Greensboro.com reported. She had seen an ad in a newspaper looking for volunteers to help the homeless, so Murphy then went on to collect chicken, and other food items, from various restaurants.
“This is for my friends downtown,’’ she told the news site. “They’re not homeless. I don’t call them that because that is not who they are. I tell people, ‘Two steps sideways and that could be any one of us.’ That’s all it takes.’’
Now, Murphy serves up food weekly to people in Greensboro -- all while sporting a chicken hat, complete with a beak and bright yellow legs.
“It’s the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done. It just feels right,” Murphy told Fox 8 News. “You come to a point where nothing else makes any sense, you just have to go do that which is in your heart.”
Nothin’ fowl about that.
