It’s a Southern staple that’s gone national, and it’s celebrating 45 years of serving up food.

Bojangles turned 45 on July 6 and is celebrating in a couple of big ways.

Bojangles has launched its first-ever charitable foundation, the Bojangles Foundation Fund, focusing resources and time toward community efforts with an emphasis on the brand’s pillars: Literacy and the military. Nonprofits dedicated to promoting literacy in their communities can apply for one of 45 $1,000 grants to be awarded. More information can be found on the Bojangles Foundation website.

In addition, Bojangles customers can get a free large cup of iced tea until July 17 when they order through the Bojangles app.
