LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — On Sunday Lexington Diner rolled out a special menu item in order to raise money for Australia wildfire relief.

They served a one-day-only Koala Protein Waffle that was packed with 21 grams of protein, 25 grams of carbs, 2 grahams of fat and drizzled with sugar free syrup.

Diner employees thought the dish was a great way for people to eat healthy and support a good cause.

"We just saw what was happening with the wildfires and we really felt everybody there in Australia and wanted to do something small that we can do," said Karen West.

All proceeds from the Koala Protein Waffle went to help Australia recover from the devastating wildfires.
