Food in the news: Chicken and squash

Salisbury – Chick-fil-A is issuing a cattle call. As part of the Atlanta-based restaurant chain’s annual Cow Appreciation Day celebration, Chick-fil-A is offering a free meal (breakfast, lunch or dinner) to any customer who visits one of its 1,900-plus restaurants fully dressed as a cow on Tuesday, July 14, 6 a.m.-10 p.m.

Customers dressed “head to hoof” in cow attire will receive a free Chick-fil-A meal, which includes an entrée, side item and Dr Pepper or other beverage choice. Customers who are too “chicken” to go all-out in cow attire will receive a free entrée of choice for wearing any cow-spotted accessory, such as a hat, scarf, tie or purse.

Locally, the Chick-fil-A Towne Creek Commons store is celebrating the holiday with its own twist. Including Cow Appreciation Day Themed Craft Night on July 13 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. for customers to make costumes.

Chick-fil-A has developed a special web site dedicated to the day: www.CowAppreciationDay.com. The site features in-depth details on the celebration, cow costume ideas, as well as downloadable cow spots, masks and other bovine-themed accessories customers can use to create costumes. More than a million cow-dressed customers stampeded Chick-fil-A restaurants nationwide for Cow Appreciation Day last year. This year also marks the 20th anniversary of Chick-fil-A’s wildly popular “Eat Mor Chikin” Cow Campaign.

Chick-fil-A is at Towne Creek Commons, 902 E. Innes St.
