Family Invites 200 Homeless People for Dinner After Wedding is Cancelled

Fowler family invites 200 of the city’s homeless to feast on the four-course meal

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me. Matthew 25: 35-36

In Atlanta, the Fowler family finds a way to turn a terrible situation into a giving and beautiful memory. Carol and Willie Fowler’s daughter Tamara was set to get married at the Villa Christina catering hall, when the wedding was called off just 40 days before the event. Initially the Fowlers were upset to hear that the lavish gathering they had planned and paid for was not going to happen. Then they had a genius and generous idea: They invited 200 of the city’s homeless to feast on the four-course meal that would have been part of Tamara’s wedding reception. Watch the beautiful story unfold here:
