The restaurant offered free food on Christmas Day.
Rabat – A Taste of Sahara, a Moroccan-Lebanese restaurant in Brighton, UK, served free food to the homeless on Christmas day.
The owner of the restaurant told British news outlet the Argus that he wanted to alleviate loneliness.
For Sabri Ben Ameur, Christmas is “one of our busiest times for us, but it makes me think about those who are homeless and alone.”
Ben Ameur argued, “No one should be alone, unappreciated and we must look out for each other regardless of race, belief and culture.”
The restaurant’s menu offers multiple dishes to its customers, especially Lebanese dishes.
A Taste of Sahara partnered with Brighton and Hove Muslim Forum for the initiative.
The leader of the forum, Tariq Jung, said, “We should always remember and reflect on the challenges in our society, as we see homelessness on the increase in our city and around the country.”
Jung added that the UK country is “strong” because it has a “diverse culture and vibrant communities.”
“This is what makes our city great,” he concluded.
