A Glasgow restaurant has stepped in to help with the city’s homelessness crisis by giving out free food to those in need.

Indian restaurant Charcoals in Renfield Street has today announced how it has been offering takeaway food to homeless people from this week.

The amazing initiative kicked off on Monday and will take place every Monday and Tuesday between 3pm and 4pm.

The man behind the initiative is 38-year-old owner Muhammad Sultan who described how over 100 people have already been fed this week alone.

Speaking with the Evening Times, Muhammad said: “I’ve done the same in Pakistan, and I thought, ‘Why not here as well?’

“Glasgow also my home. We have already fed over 100 people in two days and the food is made fresh for those who need it - none of it is leftovers.

“I want to help put an end to hunger. No one should sleep without food.”

Many of the eatery’s followers on social media applauded the venue for its charitable efforts, leaving comments including “brilliant” and “well done.”

This isn’t the first time the big-hearted dad-of-three has reached out to help those less fortunate.

The Evening Times reported in May how the restaurateur used his personal savings to travel to his family’s home city of Lahore in Pakistan to feed hundreds of people in need during the holy month of Ramadan.

Many of the people he helped during his trip were widows and orphans who received, not only free food, but clothes and money also.

Upon returning to Glasgow and reliving his experience with his customers, Muhammad said he received several offers of help, including from many of his staff.

He has since set up a fundraising page urging the public to get behind his charitable efforts as he aims to go even bigger this year to help as many people,e as he possibly can, adding: “I believe humanity comes first.”
