Two lovers in Alabama, United States, are warming hearts with their restaurant where people come to eat and pay only what they can afford, even if it is a thank-you note. Freddie and Lisa Thomas-McMillan, who own the restaurant, make no profit from it.
The restaurant, Drexell & Honeybee’s, is in downtown Brewton near the Florida border and its menu changes on a daily basis, Good News Network reports.
Briefly.co.za gathers that people never have to worry about having no money for their lunch as they can eat without paying.
There is a private booth near the restaurant entrance where people leave whatever they can afford after eating.
According to the couple, there is a real joy to knowing that their customers leave “with a full stomach, a full heart, and the understanding that you are loved and worthy of love”.
Lisa told GNN:
"Feed the Need’ is our mission statement. Whatever needs people have, if we can help t we will.”
She said when she and her husband opened the restaurant, they agreed to put a portion of their retirement funds back into it.
“When my husband and I opened, we agreed to put a portion of our retirement back into the running of the restaurant. As you can imagine donations are down, but we will continue to try and be of service to all the people that come to our door.”
