Montreal Restaurant Serves the Hungry for Free, No Questions Asked

Montreal Restaurant Serves the Hungry for Free, No Questions Asked

The Muslim-owned restaurant posted a sign on its window to inform potential patrons of its charitable mission

The co-owners said they grew up in the Middle East, where giving was part of their culture.

Marché Ferdous in Montreal is a small eatery making a big difference in the lives of locals who have little or no money to spare but need a meal.

The restaurant has been serving free food for the past four months out of a desire to help the many homeless people who gather by the church next door.

It wasn’t until Monday evening that the restaurant garnered widespread attention when customer Sean Jalbert took to Facebook Monday evening to express his gratitude for Marché Ferdous’ mission.

“They said it wasn't for the holiday season, but all the time they want to encourage helping each other through tough times,” Jalbert wrote in the Facebook post. “Absolutely incredible.”

Jalbert’s post has received more than 3,000 likes and 5,000 shares on Facebook to date. Others have also posted on the restaurant’s page to acknowledge the establishment’s positive impact on its community.

“We do not ask any questions, we do not judge people,” Yahya Hashemi, co-owner of the restaurant, told Global News. “They want to eat, [we] give them the food. That’s it, that’s all.”

Staying at my Grandma Molly's house meant her food just tasted more delicious it's probably because I've now realized that she was most likely cooking everything in lard.

My grandma didn't know GMO from MSG and she lived to be almost 90—so, by no means are criticizing. And by no means are we saying you're young if these don't apply to you.
