To many of us the idea of pizza and movie night might seem like a simple way to spend time with friends and family on a lazy Saturday night. But there are those who are not afforded such luxury. Thanks to one pizza shop in Fargo, North Dakota, run by the Stevens family, there are some who would not normally have this experience that are getting to enjoy a slice of the average life.
Jenny and Mike Stevens picked up their Little Caesars Pizza franchise in 2015, and it wasn’t long before they noticed the homeless in the area. It started with one man sitting outside a nearby gas station; they brought him a pizza because it seemed like the right thing to do. Then they did it for someone else, and again, then they noticed their dumpster was being sifted for food. That is when they put up a sign – “To the person going through our trash for their next meal, You’re a human being and worth more than a meal from a dumpster. Please come in during operating hours for a couple of slices of hot pizza and a cup of water at no charge. No questions asked.”
Since they started the count of slices given away is 140,000 and even though the family had to go through a battle with Leukemia that Mike eventually lost; they still work with shelters around Fargo to bring these pizza’s to people who cannot afford them. Jenny says she is continuing Mike’s message “He said we have more than we need and these people are struggling to find their next meal, so why not help?”
That is why this is your Good News Story of the Day. If you have more than you need, knowing there are those who have much less, why not help?
