Malcolm Jenkins, New Orleans Saints Safety, Provides 300 Poll Workers With Food

New Orleans Saints safety, Malcolm Jenkins, provided lunch for 300 poll workers at the Philadelphia Convention Center on Friday.

“It was also important to me to support a minority-owned business in Philadelphia and Keven Parker’s Soul Food Cafe made it happen on short notice,” Malcolm Jenkins said in a statement

The Malcom Jenkins Foundation purchased food from Kevin Parker Soul Food Café by Ms. Tootsies, a Black-owned business. The poll workers were treated with chicken or fish, dinner roll, macaroni & cheese or yams and a bottle of water, according to Tim McManus. 

“Covid-19 has made us aware of the importance of essential workers, and as we try to hold the election in the middle of a pandemic, those who are doing the job of counting votes are essential to our democracy. My Foundation and I wanted them to know they are appreciated and the work they are doing is important to the fabric of our democracy.

Jenkins played six seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles before re-signing with the Saints this year. Malcolm Jenkins was well-known not only for his work on the field but his immense philanthropic work in the community. He continues to do that work.
