Ky. Subway giving free sandwiches to homeless

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The proprietor of a Subway franchise in Frankfort is giving away 6-inch sandwiches to the homeless each Friday through the end of January.

Andy Patel, who runs two outlets of the sandwich shop, told The State-Journal ( ) he got the idea after seeing a sign in a New York restaurant.

Patel said he's been offering the free subs since November, and estimated that seven or eight people have visited every week. To be eligible for the free sandwich, the customer must present a certificate from an agency or shelter verifying they are homeless.

Mehgan Straub, a community resources case manager for the Simon House in Frankfort, was excited for her clients to take advantage of the free meal.
