MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Ransom Cafe Expanding
The Ransom Cafe is a ministry of the stomach, feeding folks for a small donation. Over the last few years the program has done so well that it continues to expand this time across the Bay into Daphne and is now going strong at six different churches. Founder Matt Armbruster said a good meal delivers a message of hope.
Armbruster told us, “There's nobody really doing what we're doing as far as a model to look at. So we just kind of go and open up at different places and we just realized we need to take this to where the people were not to expect them to come to us.”
“The first year I think we served ten thousand meals second year 15 and we've already served about twenty thousand meals this year already. “
“I do this because for the first time in my life I know where I'm supposed to be. It’s seeing people with a smile on their face when they step out of our showers or when they step out of here with a full belly and being able to get to talk to them and know their story first before you start judging people and it's really changed my life and my family's life and I wouldn't trade it for the world.”
