A Manchester restaurant has been praised after launching a project to give all of its leftover food at the end of each day to the north-west city’s homeless.
Bosu Body Bar started the project by leaving brown paper bags of food on the street for homeless people in need.
“When we close the doors for the day, we promise to leave bags outside full of tasty food. If you see anyone on the streets of Manchester or Didsbury who look hungry, let them know where they can find a meal in a bag.” they said.
The bar now plans to expand its project by teaming up with local charities in Manchester to distribute the food each night. They are also encouraging customers to fill a small bag with winter clothes they no longer need and drop it off at one of their restaurants.
“No one should feel cold and lonely this winter, no one should feel hungry,” they added.
“That's why we are launching this project as the winter days approach.
“We will donate all the bags to local charities across Manchester who can help distribute them throughout the night.”
They are encouraging members of the public to “fill a bag with love, fill a bag with hope”.
The food-giving project has been praised, with one responding: “Wonderful idea, kindness will always be appreciated by those in need and congratulated by those with a heart.”

Anna-Clare Hillier added: “Wonderful. So simple, so good.”
