Sussex chicken company joins in on Thanksgiving at Easter

Calling it a continuation of a project started at Thanksgiving, Sussex County chicken producer, Mountaire, will join forces with the American Legion to provide 1,000 Easter meals.

The two groups are calling it their effort to wage war on hunger, hurt, and hate on Delmarva.  The boxes will go out Tuesday to 28 church groups across Sussex County.
