Woman Gives Homeless Man Food In Exchange for Dish Duty – 2 Weeks Later He Hasn’t Left

After a struggling homeless man came knocking at her door, Cesia Abigail did the unthinkable. In a simple act of kindness, she traded him food in exchange for a few hours work.

The Minnesota cafe owner simply didn’t believe in handing out money. To her, a dollar earned was a dollar worked! When Marcus arrived at Abi’s Cafe begging for some cash, she didn’t show him the door. Instead, she offered him a job and a meal.


Marcus explained he’d resorted to stealing and panhandling for money. Due to his criminal past and multiple felonies, it was hard for him to find work. The kindhearted business owner admired his honesty and promptly offered Marcus the chance to work for her.


On the man’s first day, Abigail kindly gave the man a sandwich. Showing just how generous the man really is, after eating half of it, Marcus went outside to offer the rest to homeless woman. Every day, the man showed up for his two hour shift. Doing the dishes, taking out the trash, and scrubbing the tables, Marcus earns his keep.


“Once I pay him guess what he does? He buys food from my restaurant (HE DECIDES TO PAY) because it makes him feel good,” Abigail wrote in a Facebook post.

“He gets a discount!!!!!” she added.
