Charo Chicken, a fast-casual restaurant chain specializing in fire-grilled chicken and Mexican cuisine, is distributing almost 5,000 pounds of chicken to the Orange County Rescue Mission and Second Harvest Food Bank today.

Each organization will receive roughly 2,500 pounds of chicken, and the total amount is expected to prepare up to 10,000 meals.

Charo Chicken's owners Moe Bonakdar and Ray Perry are delivering the chicken to the Orange County Rescue Mission’s Village of Hope facility and Second Harvest Food Bank in Irvine.

The Orange County Rescue Mission is a nonprofit working with the region's underserved. It is located at 1 Hope Drive in Tustin. The Second Harvest Food Bank, which is dedicated to alleviating hunger in Orange County, recently moved from its Orange location to a new facility at 8014 Marine Way in Irvine.
