Miami community members treat homeless to lunch

MIAMI (WSVN) - Community members treated several people from the homeless community to lunch in Miami, Friday afternoon.

Fifteen homeless people from the Camillus House enjoyed a warm meal from Pollo Tropical at 3499 Biscayne Blvd., around noon.

Miami Police Senior Executive Assistant James Bernat, along with Biscayne Neighborhood Association President Andres Althabe, hosted the event to spread the message that homeless people are no different from anyone else.

“The homeless come from all aspects of life, and in this county, everyone deserves to improve their positions,” said Bernat.

Bernat said he hopes to hold more events like this in the future.
