Saturday Chicken Stew to benefit Speake Volunteer Fire

Chicken Stew is cooked over an open flame before it is ready to be served up in a fundraiser for Speake Volunteer Fire Department on Saturday. Stew can be picked up at Wiggins Grocery in Danville from about 8:30 a.m. until the stew is sold out.


Speake Volunteer Fire Department is holding a Chicken Stew fundraiser Saturday morning to benefit their department.

Chicken stew will be ready for pickup between 8:30 and 9:30 a.m. at Wiggins Grocery, Speake Assistant Fire Chief Gunnar Walling said.

The cost is $20 per gallon or $10 per half-gallon. Patrons are encouraged to bring glass gallon or half-gallon jars. An additional $2 fee will be charged for those who do not provide a glass jar.

“The chicken stew is cooked over an open fire in a cast-iron pot,” Walling added. “100 percent of the proceeds go into the fire department’s fundraiser account, which will be used for the purchase of newer, more reliable equipment to serve the citizens of Speake.”

Wiggins Grocery is located at 3435 Alabama 157 in Danville. For more information, visit the Speake VFD Facebook page.
