While enjoying a meal at a local restaurant might be a pleasure, the popular quick service restaurant is taking that eating experience to the home table. A first for the brand, the Chick-fil-A Extra Helpings cookbook offers tasty meal suggestions and looks to spark a fulfilling conversation.

Recently, Chick-fil-A has been evolving its menu. From the new Pimento Cheese inspired sandwich to seasonal shakes, there always seems to be another reason to make a special visit. It does not mean that the favorite order gets pushed aside. There are just more options to enjoy on the menu.

The new Chick-fil-A Extra Helpings cookbook is more than just a digital download of various recipes. It includes stories and ways to make a difference in the local community.

As Brent Fielder, senior director of corporate social responsibility for Chick-fil-A, Inc. commented, “Our goal for ‘Extra Helpings’ is not only to inspire individuals to reimagine their extra food into new, delicious recipes, but also spark conversations about the important issues of food insecurity and food waste. Participating Chick-fil-A Owner-Operators across the U.S. and Canada care for their neighbors and communities through Chick-fil-A Shared Table food donations, collectively donating over 23 million meals in the past 11 years. While we’re pleased with this milestone, we know there is more work to be done, which is why we’re spotlighting this important issue.”

While many people will be inspired to transform Chick-fil-A menu items into one of the 26 recipes in the cookbook, others will scroll directly to the classic recipes section. For those people who have longed to have another taste of that classic coleslaw, the food brand has shared the secret recipe.

Beyond all the tasty food creations, the stories woven into the cookbook are important. Food can build a bridge within a community. Whether it is helping someone who is struggling or offering a way to create a stronger foundation to success, there are plenty of positive, heartwarming moments that can foster a greater willingness to help others.
