Suspended Meal at Cafes

I read about the concept of Suspended Coffee recently. Such a cool idea!
First thing came to my mind was how about doing it in our neighborhood.?
Well yes we can. Shared the idea with a friend who owns a cafe, pretty much open for it.
Yes, it might be a little not easy to do it the exact same way.
Suspended meal is what we thought of doing.
The idea is simple. When you buy a coffee or a snack you pay for one more which goes suspended. Meaning, its paid but not delivered. For all the suspended meals in the week we go to different places in the city and will offer them as meals to the people who are hungry every Sunday.

Let's see how it works out! :)

What difference can one person make?

“While wandering a deserted beach at dawn, stagnant in my work, I saw a man in the distance bending and throwing as he walked the endless stretch toward me. As he came near, I could see that he was throwing starfish, abandoned on the sand by the tide, back into the sea. When he was close enough I asked him why he was working so hard at this strange task. He said that the sun would dry the starfish and they would die. I said to him that I thought he was foolish. There were thousands of starfish on miles and miles of beach. One man alone could never make a difference. He smiled as he picked up the next starfish. Hurling it far into the sea he said, “It makes a difference for this one.” I abandoned my writing and spent the morning throwing starfish.”
