Marco’s Chicken and Waffles is hosting its third annual Thanksgiving meal giveaway

HATTIESBURG, Miss. (WDAM) – Marco’s Chicken and Waffles served up a hot Thanksgiving meal to warm the hearts of community members.

Volunteers from all over the central city gave their time and energy to make the third annual “free” Thanksgiving lunch all that and more. Marco Baker, the owner, said he is grateful for all the support he has received.

“The donations have helped a lot and we can’t do it without the people. I just thank everyone for pushing the vision that God has given us,” said Marco.

Myron Lott is the owner of The Mint Julep Patio, an event venue in Hattiesburg. He took time out of his day to help Baker and help in any way possible.

“It’s a win-win,” Lott said, “it’s rewarding, and I appreciate … Marco and the first lady, Mae Baker, for giving us a platform to give back to so many.”

Marco’s Chicken and Waffles fed over 11,300 people in the community.
