Stubb's hosts meal for homeless in Lubbock

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

It's estimated that more than 500 people in Lubbock are homeless. This week marks national homelessness and hunger awareness week, which takes place every year the week before Thanksgiving.   Each year Stubb's legendary kitchen joins in the effort to raise awareness. On Sunday, to kick of its Texas tour, they fed hundreds of hungry and homeless Lubbockites a hot BBQ lunch.

The first Stubb's restaurant was located here in the hub city and the event took place at Family Promise on 15th Street.

Mitch McMahan tells NewsChannel 11 that he is homeless and he says, "I take it as a blessing, because they don't have to come out here and donate their time and their services."

The president of Stubb's estimates that about a thousand people were feed by the Austin based restaurant.

Kurt Koegler president of Stubb's says, "We kind of honor Stubb and his wanting to feed the world. He used to say 'I was born hungry and I want to feed the world.'"

Koegler says they've been to 25 different cities and have fed homeless in 20 different organizations.
