Restaurant Offers Free Meals on Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is sure to bring out some of the turkeys in the world, but it also brings out some of the good in people. George Dimopoulos, a Greek immigrant, is heating up the commercial ovens and opening his commercial refrigerators to offer free meals in his restaurant to Detroit residents. He does it to honor the memory of the times when he was homeless and on the street.

This is one of those things that Dimopoulos does from the heart. He came to America at 23 in 1969 and saved up enough money to open his own restaurant. He definitely remembers what it was like to have nothing to eat and nothing in his pocket.

Now, he owns several restaurants and feeds people every day. And, as good news travels fast, he’s expecting to receive a lot of people at his restaurant for this Thanksgiving. He placed a sign in the window which reads, “George’s Thanksgiving Day Dinner. If anyone is home alone, come eat with us for free! All day Thurs November 26th.” There should be plenty of takers.

Thanksgiving is about appreciating what you have and the sacrifices which have been made. If you’re in Detroit on Thanksgiving, you can also have a full tummy.
