An Indiana pizza shop has found a great way to help the homeless and underprivileged in their community. At 8th Street Pizza in New Albany, they allow diners to pay whatever they can.
The restaurant is part of the nonprofit Clean Socks Hope that works with underserved communities. Anyone who can afford to pay it forward, pays for their own meal and makes a donation to provide meals for someone else. If someone can’t pay for food, they’re allowed to help around the shop instead.
“We do dignity based, there’s no handouts here,” explains executive director of Clean Socks Hope Jeff Minton. “We have been able to feed almost 1,200 folks, individual folks, by the kindness of others.”
