    Edmonton Is In Love With This Donair Shop Owner Who Fed A Hungry Man For Free

    Jumbo Donair, jumbo heart.

    People in Edmonton are flocking to the Jumbo Donair shop after a Facebook post about the owner's act of kindness went viral.

    Tons of people answered the call, and Brandvold's post was shared thousands of times on Facebook and Twitter.

    Way to go Jumbo Donair! Great example of a kind heart. Let's support this biz, go buy lunch there! #yeg #yegnews

    Visit Jumbo Donair 66 St. , Edmonton & enjoy the hospitality of Maher. He is a blessing & helps feed the homeless >

    Before Maher Taweel even knew why, customers started crowding into his small donair shop ordering food and thanking him for his generosity.

    It also helps that the food looks fucking amazing, tbh.

    Taweel, who moved to Canada from Palestine 14 years ago, said it was just a part of his culture to share with the needy. He said he has been giving away free meals for a long time.

    "Always I do it, actually. Even at home, I give to neighbours if I have [extra] food," he said.

    "This is normal for us anyway. Serious. This is how we grow up."
