Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Westernjournal.com: “Meet the 90-Year-Old Chef with a Heart for the Poor”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Dino Impagliazzo is 90 years old and has been serving meals to the homeless for around 15 years — and it all started with a simple request.

According to the RomAmoR website, it was on a Sunday in 2006 that a retired Impagliazzo was approached by a man while passing through the Tuscolana train station. The man asked for some money to buy a coffee.

That got Impagliazzo thinking. He conversed with the man and found out that while there were some groups that helped feed the homeless on other days, none of them operated on Sundays.

“Dino, considering that it was not right that those in difficulty were not helped on Sunday, which is the day of the Lord, began to talk about it with some friends, asking for their availability to prepare sandwiches and urging them to involve other people who would help them,” the website reads.

“I realized that perhaps instead of buying one sandwich, making some sandwiches for him and for the friends who were there would be better, and thus began our adventure,” Impagliazzo said, according to Reuters.
