Restaurant Owner Has The Most Heartwarming Way Of Helping The Homeless
Homelessness is an epidemic across the world. In fact, there are at least 100 million people worldwide living without homes each year. Helping these people live safely is a task that all of society must take on. One restaurant owner in Australia is already making huge strides. They are helping feed the homeless in a way no one thought possible.
A Rough Past
Ashish Sood, an Australian restaurant owner, was once homeless himself. He arrived in Brisbane, Australia, hoping to become a business owner. However, things didn’t fall into place as quickly as he would have liked.
Sood spent two weeks of his life sleeping in a park. While that doesn’t seem like a long time, two weeks with no home and no promise of stability can feel like an eternity. That’s why Sood decided that when his dream came true, he would help others in the same situation.
Paying It Forward
Sood was finally able to build his way up to becoming a restaurant owner. He opened his dream eatery, Ginger and Garlic. Each night at 10:30, he opens the restaurant for those who are in need of a warm meal. By serving leftovers, he is able to help the homeless of his community while maintaining profits and preventing food waste.
Ginger and Garlic heavily advertises its program, too. There are always signs posted on the door stating when those in need can come get a free meal.
A Bright Future
Unfortunately, Ginger and Garlic is currently only able to serve eight or nine homeless people each day. They are working on different ways to get the word out, though. They want to help as many people as they can.
What Sood is doing with his dream restaurant truly is amazing. We hope that his good deed will help inspire others. Only then can we truly start fighting the homelessness epidemic that is plaguing our world.
