This ‘Robin Hood’ Restaurant Charges The Rich Extra To Feed The Poor And It’s Beautiful


Take from the rich, give to the poor. That simple mantra has become synonymous with the tales of a merry crusader known as Robin Hood.

The appropriately named Robin Hood Restaurant in Madrid, Spain, has taken the spirit of that crusade and turned it into an innovative concept for their patrons, as customers who dine during breakfast and lunch hours, actually pay a little extra so the homeless can enjoy a free dinner there, reports NPR.

That means, if you decide to grab lunch at Robin Hood, a cut of your bill is technically going toward a homeless person’s dinner, later that night.

Robin Hood is run by Ángel García Rodriguez, an 80-year-old Catholic priest who is warmly nicknamed “Padre Ángel” by the community. The restaurant has garnered so much positive publicity, that it’s been book through March already.

Here’s hoping this amazing concept comes to the United States sometime soon. The world could always use more good will.
