McDonalds Near Vatican To Feed Homeless Each Day

January 13, 2017

Corporate responsibility can happen!

Less than a month after upsetting cardinals and cultural heritage guardians by opening a fast food outlet near St Peter’s Square, McDonald’s is to hand out thousands of burgers to homeless people who live around the Vatican.

The charitable act was seen in Rome as a way to win back public opinion and atone for the resentment caused by the unveiling of the McDonald’s in a street just a stone’s throw from the gates of the Vatican.

Starting next week, McDonald’s will dole out double cheeseburgers, apples and bottles of water to the many people who live rough in and around St Peter’s.

Every Monday lunchtime, more than 1,000 meals will be given free to the homeless by volunteers from a charitable organization called Medicina Solidale.
