There’s nothing like feeding the family on $5 with the help of Little Caesars and a hot-n-ready pizza. It’s quick, convenient, and best of all: It’s cheap.
But even at a measly $5 per pie, not everyone has the luxury of filling up on a deep dish pepperoni when dinnertime rolls around.
Little Caesars employees in Fargo, North Dakota, took notice of a not-so-fortunate neighbor who made a daily ritual out of rummaging through the restaurant’s trash out back.
Realizing that the man was homeless, the employees made multiple efforts to reach out and help the mysterious dumpster diver. But each time they tried to approach him, he’d quickly run off, embarrassed that he’d been caught digging for food.
Refusing to let him find his next meal in the trash, the Little Caesars employees took matters into their own hands.
On the window of the store, they posted a note written directly to the homeless man, knowing full-well that he’d have to walk past it before reaching the dumpster.

The message read:
“To the person going through our trash for their next meal, you’re a human being and worth more than a meal from the dumpster. Please come in during operating hours for a couple of slices of hot pizza and a cup of water at no charge. No questions asked.”
Local resident Rachel Nistler tweeted a photo of the note saying that she was “very impressed” with the Fargo staff.
It turns out this particular Little Caesars has a reputation for doing GOOD.
A local news outlet discovered that the Fargo location has been helping their homeless neighbors for years, by making nightly deliveries of leftover pizzas to homeless shelters in the area.
They’re feeding bellies, lifting spirits and proving that all it takes is a little bit of kindness to make a world of good.
