A south-side Chicago church will give out frozen chickens to needy families Saturday.
The Faith Community of St. Sabina is cooperating with the HEAR Foundation to hand out 800, 10-pound chickens.
The Rev. Michael Pfleger (FLAY'-gur) of St. Sabina says the food distribution is a "great blessing" for many families struggling through tough economic times.
Pfleger is also a community activist who will remind parishioners of their obligation to vote in Tuesday's election.
Pfleger says he will address other aspects of the election and the politics surrounding it at the church's worship service at 10 a.m. Sunday.
