A view of Sanders Cafe, the original KFC.

It’s a good thing I visited the first KFC in Corbin, Ky., last week.

Yum! Brands, the parent company of the fried-chicken chain, will close the Corbin restaurant, according to Business First of Louisville.

But Yum! plans to turn the Corbin location along with the first KFC franchise in Salt Lake City into “World Hunger Relief Kitchens” that will serve free meals to residents of local shelters, the Business First article said.

Yum! sponsors the World Hunger Relief campaign “to raise awareness, volunteerism and funds for the United Nations’ World Food Programme (WFP) and other hunger relief agencies,” according to the campaign’s website.

Full disclosure: Today, I will see the campaign firsthand – representatives from Yum!, KFC and the World Hunger Relief campaign will visit Neighborhood House and serve food to our kids and their families.
