Bus driver delivers free home cooked meals

This is an amazing story about being our brother's keeper. I just found this story on CNN and was amazed. This individual makes about $700 a week and is from Colombia originally. For a living, he drives a school bus. In 2004, a friend told him about the amount of food that was being thrown away regularly where he worked and he decided to do something about it.

He began by simply delivering lunches to men in need and over time, it transformed into something much larger. Here is an excerpt from the story: "Munoz began his unorthodox meal program -- now his nonprofit, An Angel in Queens -- in the summer of 2004. Friends told him about large amounts of food being thrown away at their jobs. At first, he collected leftovers from local businesses and handed out brown bag lunches to underprivileged men three nights a week. Within a few months, Munoz and his mother were preparing 20 home-cooked meals daily."

Please read the story in its entirety - it will warm your heart and might even inspire you to do something as we try to make it through this most difficult time in which we find ourselves.
