Ashland pizza place helping feed the homeless


Ashland, Ore.– Ashland’s Northwest Pizza is used to making one hot pizza pie after the other. But for some eating a slice doesn’t come easy.

“I haven’t eaten a warm meal in weeks,” said David Majella.

Those who live on the street, like Majella will soon have a friend who reaches out to them.

Restaurant owner, Morgan George wants to feed the hungry who otherwise can’t afford a meal.

He was inspired by a pizza place in New Jersey.

“Put an extra two dollars on your bill you can help someone in need.” That’s Kamana Akagi, he works at Northwest. Morgan did not want to go on camera because he felt the story isn’t about him. So he stuck to the cooking.

But because of his big heart, starting January first they’ll be selling coupons.

In exchange the coupon will be available for a homeless person to pick up from this board and it gets them a free pizza.

“I think its wonderful its special, ” said Majella.

“It obviously a beautiful thing that people in this community care about the homeless population,” said Luke James.

Morgan said because they don’t have a pizza by the slice oven, that coupon will get someone a personal sized pizza.

This establishment is known for their gift of giving. Thank you cards are posted all over the same board where the coupons will be available.

“We always love to lend a helping hand the Medford community and anyone in the Rogue Valley,” said Akagi.

Morgan said the coupon deal will be a permanent thing at Northwest.
