The Christmas season is about giving and spending time with loved ones. Unfortunately, not everyone is as fortunate as we are and often have no family to spend the holidays with.
Shish Restaurant, a Muslim-owned restaurant in Sidcup, England knows that no one should eat alone on Christmas day and offers free meals to the homeless and elderly on Christmas. This selfless act of generosity is heartwarming and a great example of how a business could make a difference for so many people at Christmas.
While many families spend time together at Christmas, not everyone is fortunate to spend the holidays in a nice home surrounded by family.
The owners of the Shish Restaurant realizes this and wanted to do something special for the homeless and elderly on Christmas Day.
The holidays are about spending time with family and no one should eat alone on Christmas Day.
The restaurant planned out what to put on their announcement and promised that they are “here to sit with you.”
Formal announcements were created and the restaurant urged patrons to spread the word so that nobody eats alone on Christmas Day.
The gesture was shared on social media and the positive response was overwhelming.
The kitchen staff took it upon themselves to give everyone a Christmas feast that they will always remember.
The three-course Turkish meal started with soup and Casik.
The main dish was a choice of Chicken Shish or a chicken or vegetable casserole. For dessert there was yummy rice pudding.
It warms your heart when business owners open their hearts to people in need and this gesture should be applauded. Please share how this Muslim restaurant offered a free Christmas meal to people in need on Christmas Day with your friends and family.
