An Ohio developer has treated 50 homeless men and women to a four-course fine-dining experience.
Then he decided to treat 50 homeless people to a gourmet dinner in the four-star Akron restaurant he co-owns.
The Akron Beacon Journal reports that diners were treated to spinach quiche salad, potato leek soup, braised beef short ribs and a chocolate mousse desert.
They were offered seconds and given takeout bags with leftovers as they left.
Testa says he wants to change the perception people have of the homeless, adding that homelessness can happen to anyone.
An estimated 800 people living in Akron are homeless.
