Falcons’ Jarrett to provide meals for first responders

The Falcons’ Grady Jarrett is providing meals to first responders in the city of Atlanta and Rockdale County throughout April, the team announced Tuesday. Jarrett, from Conyers, will team with Zaxby’s in the cause during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I feel like it’s the least l can do with them taking the risk going out there every day and being on the front lines and making sure the world is still operating, people are being taken care of,” Jarrett said in a statement. “I feel that my family and I feeding them Zaxby’s meals to just make sure that they have something to eat is just a small gesture to show that their work is appreciated.”

Every Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday throughout the month of April, Zaxby’s will drop off hot meals at five different locations – Atlanta Fire Station 1, Atlanta Police Headquarters, Rockdale County Fire Rescue, Rockdale County Sherriff’s office and Conyers Police Department. 

Jarrett will provide nearly 5,000 meals by the end of this month.
