These restaurant owners have a habit of reaching out to those in need; they are a shining example of generosity and a role model to others. Staff at Little Caesar’s restaurant in Fargo, North Dakota, noticed that a homeless person had been searching through their trash to find something to eat. They felt compassion for a fellow human being and decided to do something about it. They posted a note in the front window, which read:
“To the person going through our trash for their next meal, you’re a human being and worth more than a meal from the dumpster.
Please come in during operating hours for a couple of slices of hot pizza and a cup of water at no charge.
No questions asked.”
Sara Gross saw the note and felt compelled to praise the restaurant on Facebook with a photo of the sign. The pizza restaurant is owned by Mike and Jenny Stevens, and they’ve made a habit of helping out with free pizza when they can.
They donate to the Salvos and other centers, including giving pizzas that are more than 30 minutes out of the oven to homeless shelters, often with inspirational notes written by caring customers.
Over the past two years, they have donated an incredible 90,000 slices of pizza to homeless folk, not because they have to, or to gain fame or recognition, but because they are genuine people who truly care.
