A Manchester restaurant has been heaping praises on social media for leaving food for city’s homeless in the night. Bosu Body Bar, a healthy fast-food restaurant started a project recently where they leave boxes of free food for people after closing each night.
The restaurant started the project after realizing that there were a lot of people in the city sleeping on the streets without having proper food. The food boxes can last up to 72 hours and are kept right outside the restaurant. While most restaurants throw away the leftovers, Bosu decided to pave a generous way. The shop owners have also encouraged customers to donate warm clothes that can be given along with the food.

The project gained momentum on social media after they shared a picture of the free boxes of the food with the caption, “THE BOSU PROJECT When we close the doors for the day, we promise to leave bags outside full of tasty food.. If you see anyone on the streets of Manchester or Didsbury who look hungry, let them know where they can find a meal in a bag. Spread the love always #Manchester.” The post was widely shared on social media with people praising their efforts.

The restaurant owner, Michael Beck who runs the business with partners Oliver Drummond and Josef Ramzi-Faddoul said they had been humbled by the response. The restaurant is also asking customers to drop off hats and warm clothes which can also be given to homeless people.
Beck also said that they were contacting homeless shelters to arrange drop-offs and collections of the food boxes so it reached the needy on time. We hope the project helps people and survive the winter.
