Support Marriage Equality By Eating At Schnipper’s This Month

If you’re a fan of Chick Fil A, you’ve undoubtedly heard about the PR shit-storm their President thurst them into last week with some less than nice comments about gay people.  Our lack of a real Chick Fil in Manhattan has been well documented, and Christine Quinn is trying to get the NYU food court location kicked out of the city.  But if boycotting a location you technically have to sneak into anyway isn’t really your thing, there is something else you can do to support the cause cause.

Starting today and through the month of August, both Schnipper’s Quality Kitchen locations will donate $1.00 from every purchase of a Schnipper’s chicken filet sandwich to Marriage Equality USA, a non-profit whose mission is to secure legally recognized civil marriage equality for all. Check it out after the jump…

This sign is now hanging behind the counter at the 8th avenue space.

If you remember, I was a huge fan of their crispy chicken sandwich, so I was excited to try this one. The Schnipper’s chicken filet sandwich ($5.99) included crispy chicken filets with pickles and Schnipper’s sauce on a soft hamburger-type bun. I also ordered a side of sweet potato fries with maple dipping sauce for $3.99.

The sandwich included two filets, topped with four pickles, so it’s a decent amount of food. I have to say, though, taste-wise, I much preferred the crispy chicken sandwich to this one — it’s way more complex and interesting. But at $8.99, it’s too expensive for sides, so if you like sides with your sandwich, this one might be more your speed.

Plus, it’s for marriage equality!
