Despite the loss to the restaurant, my heart warmed to the story of the homeless men who found themselves in Brasserie66 one Christmas Day and were able to avail of a festive feast.Somebody must have ben praying for them.
It got me thinking that restaurants all over Ireland end up with surplus food on Christmas Eve while hundreds or maybe thousands of homeless and underprivileged people have less than enough to eat over the holiday period. Wouldn't it be nice if some restaurants invited the homeless in for a meal after they are finished on Christmas Eve or at least donated their surplus food to SVP, Penny Dinners or other organisations who care for the homeless. They might even include a bottle or two of wine.
Now there's a little project that the RAI might pursue.
