Today’s Solutions: June 13, 2024

Tackling homelessness and food insecurity can seem like an insurmountable feat, but a Middle Eastern restaurant in St. John’s, Newfoundland, is doing its part to help.

Every day, Big Bite Pita provides free meals to people in need for an hour a day, 7 days a week. The restaurant opened its doors over a year ago and, more recently, it put up a sign in the window that reads, “Free meal for the homeless everyday from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.” Since posting that sign, the owners have stayed true to their promise.

The restaurant’s free meal policy started when a man came in asking what he could get for the few dollars he had. The owners told him he could have whatever he wanted. Since then, the restaurant has been feeding people in need almost every day.
