Chick-fil-A, famed for never opening on Sundays and will likely never be, has made an exception.

The fast food chain is stepping in to feed passengers left affected by the Atlanta airport blackout, according to the City of Atlanta

They’ll be served at the Georgia International Convention Center, where they are able to stay overnight, which is a pretty nice consolation given what some of these people have gone through.

It’s a remarkable aberration from the company’s policy on Sunday trading hours, rooted in founder Truett Cathy’s devout Christian beliefs. 

The policy remains the same at the Chick-fil-A in the newly opened Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Its main tenant, the Atlanta Falcons, will only play one regular season game that doesn’t fall on a Sunday.

As of 11:30 p.m. EST, there were 2,000 meals served to passengers, according to Atlanta’s mayor Kasim Reed. See, this is how bad it has to get for Chick-Fil-A to open on a Sunday.
