Chef Wins $250,000 Lottery And Uses It To Feed The Hungry

A celebrated chef is winning hearts all over the world with his selfless act of feeding the hungry with some of the lottery prize money he won.

Chef Roberto Mendonza won a quarter of a million in lottery prize money and decided he’ll feed the poor with part of it.

Chef Mendonza bought a lottery ticket on his mother’s advice, when he went to a local gas station and bought a $5 scratch off. A few minutes later, he got $250,000 richer and decided he would use a part of the winnings to feed the needy in his Charlotte, North Carolina, neighborhood.

He has also decided to finish building his cafeteria in the Dominican Republic so that he could feed poor residents in a village there.

Verse of the Day

[Jesus Predicts His Death a Third Time] Now Jesus was going up to Jerusalem. On the way, he took the Twelve aside and said to them, “We are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death and will hand him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. On the third day he will be raised to life!” — Matthew 20: 17-19 (NIV)
