The newest Chick-fil-A location to open in Atlanta is putting a community service spin on its customary 24-hour camp-out contest.

Starting at 10 a.m. Wednesday, 60 people gathering at the Cascade Road location helped to pack 10,000 charity lunches while they wait for a chance to win free Chick-fil-A for a year. The meals will be donated to the Atlanta Community Food Bank.

The new location is set to open Thursday at 3275 Cascade Road SW. As is customary for Chick-fil-A grand openings, the “First 100 Campout” contest guarantees free food for one year to the first 100 qualified people to show up. 

The franchise's owner, Rory Woodfaulk, funded the donation.
