A restaurant in Manchester has been praised for handing its leftover food to the homeless at the end of every day.

The project by Bosu Body Bar first started as staff would leave paper bags full of food outside the building for the homeless to pick up, according to The Telegraph.

It now wants to take the cause further by working with charities in the city to take the food out to the homeless at night.

The restaurant said “when we close the doors for the day, we promise to leave bags outside full of tasty food."

It also asks people to inform "anyone on the streets of Manchester or Didsbury who look hungry" that they can find food in a bag outside Bosu Body Bar.

Now the restaurant is calling on customers to donate bags of winter clothes which can be given to the homeless. It is using the slogan “fill a bag with love, fill a bag with hope."

Bosu Body Bar said that no one ought to be “cold and lonely this winter, no one should feel hungry.

“We will donate all the bags to local charities across Manchester who can help distribute them throughout the night.”

The public have taken well to the idea, with one person saying "wonderful idea, kindness will always be appreciated by those in need and congratulated by those with a heart.”

Another said that all businesses should do the same as it makes no sense to throw away food when some people have nothing.
