On Tuesday, 19 local McDonald’s owners donated 32,400 McRib patties, buns, and sauce to the Tri-State Food Bank, which serves 33 counties in Indiana, Kentucky, and Illinois.

“Tri-State Food Bank makes such a positive impact in our area,” said Larry Lovelace, local McDonald’s Owner/Operator. “We’re honored to be able to give back during this time when so many in our communities aren’t sure where their next meal will come from.”

Lovelace, along with other local McDonald’s owners including Stephanie Bishop, Michael Burrell, Ivan Carvajal, Kelsey Hamlet, Chip Kenworthy, Katie Kenworthy, Ryan Kramer, Mike Love, Michael Love, Jr., Rick Mann, Susan Mann, Chris McEnaney, Joe McEnaney, Kathy McEnaney, John Moreland, Wally Nowakowski, Brad Short, and Tina Short own and operate a combined 76 restaurants throughout Tri-State Food Bank’s 33-county service area.

“The generosity of these local McDonald’s owners will feed so many across the Tri-State,” said Glenn Roberts, Executive Director for Tri-State Food Bank.

Roberts says that meat and proteins are always in high demand, but that these types of large donations are especially impactful with the increased number of individuals seeking food assistance in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to Roberts, the donation of 32,400 McRibs will be distributed to thousands of families throughout Tri-State Food Bank's 33-county service area.
