A man, apparently homeless, walked out of the restaurant’s bathroom carrying three bags, including one that contained a comforter. 

Brandon Stephenson saw the man and asked him to take a seat before buying him something to eat. 

Brandon then sat and talked with the man and asked about him. Brandon also told him about himself and that when he was younger, he knew what it was like to go without food.

The homeless man ate, thanked Brandon and asked him about a job. Brandon explained how to apply and that if he did not have a computer, there were some at the library.

"My grandma Kelly raised me to do that and I think people should treat people that don't have much better, than they are now. So I try to help people when I can," Brandon told KSNF.

Amanda Vanderford was having dinner at the Taco Bell. 

“This is what we need in this world. More people like him,” Vanderford wrote on Facebook. “More people who are kind, not because they have to but because they want to.”
