Hungry residents in Edmonton, Canada, need not worry about where their next meal will come from as compassionate business owner Parkash Chhibber is offering a deal few can refuse.

According to CBC News, the owner of Indian Fusion restaurant has posted a sign on the establishment’s back door which reads:

“Dear Friends, If you are hungry and have no money to pay, just ring the bell below or come in for a free meal box/coffee any time.”

Those who are hungry are offered a vegetarian option, a non-vegetarian option and a choice of drink. It is estimated that the restaurant feeds up to fifteen people a day.

When the philanthropist started offering free meals, he had no idea news of the generous deed would spread around the world like wildfire. His story has resulted in headlines in the UK, the United States, India, and other countries.

His aim isn’t to improve business, however, but to give back to the community because he knows what it’s like to be in a tough spot. In 1992, he was involved in an accident that left him with broken bones and the inability to work.

He says:

“I went from king to beggar in one night. I always had fire in me that if ever I had a chance to help, I would.”

After paying off his business loan two years ago, Chhibber immediately began looking into ways to help others. He intends to continue offering free meals to hungry individuals in need and next plans to create an additional seating area if those coming for free meals desire to stay.

“I’ll feed anyone who knocks,” he says.
