For a while, restaurant owner Yahya Hashemi was encountering a skew of patrons that were short on cash. So, he was inspired to create a new policy and hung a sign that said “people with no money welcome to eat free.”
Five months later, the restaurant is still going strong and he is receiving praise in the community and on social media. Best of all, Hashemi says that people are now increasingly inspired to pay it forward and pay for others’ meals.
