GREENSBORO, N.C. -- To many people Amy Murphy is known as "The Chicken Lady" because she brings fried chicken to feed the homeless in downtown Greensboro.
With the help of Mayor Robbie Perkins and hundreds of volunteers, she was able to organize the first Chicken Walk Saturday to feed more of the Triad's homeless.
The idea began when Amy approached Bojangles' for help and they told her they would offer to help feed one thousand people Saturday.
Amy says the proceeds from the walk will go towards helping the Interactive Resource Center (IRC) getting closer to being open on the weekends to serve the city's homeless.
