REFUGEE-RUN RESTAURANT GIVING FREE MEALS TO FURLOUGHED FEDERAL WORKERS

Quite a few restaurants are stepping in to help government and furloughed workers make ends meet including a refugee-run restaurant in Knoxville, Tennessee, that was voted the "Nicest Place in America" last year is giving free meals to government workers who've been furloughed or are working without pay during the partial government shutdown, which is now over a month old. The owner of Yassin's Falafel House, a Syrian refugee named Yassin Terou, has become a beloved part of the community since he came to the U.S. in 2011. Local community members are pitching in to help cover the costs of the free meals by making donations to the restaurant.
