Man opens restaurant where homeless people can come in and eat for free


A young man, Derrick Walton has become a philanthropist after he decided to open an eatery joint where the less privileged who are homeless can come and dine for free.  

On how he landed the job, he said: “Just before I was going to give up, on that 10th day, and I’ll never forget it, I went to a Greek restaurant in downtown Detroit.

I met with a gentleman, I told him, ‘Look I’ve made a lot of poor choices and decisions in my life.’ I said, ‘I’m not looking for a handout,’ I said, ‘but if you give me an opportunity or a chance, I won’t let you down. I’m a great cook’.”

On each Monday, Derrick would close his shop to the paying public so the homeless can have a variety of free food.

Volunteers have since joined in his kind gesture and they always weekly organize vehicles to transport the homeless to the restaurant.
