A San Antonio man is giving free meals to those in need, even when his restaurant is struggling to survive during this COVID-19 pandemic.

Joey Prado own's Chunky's Burgers and More. He's seen plenty of hungry people who can't afford to eat during this pandemic.

Prado says, "I can't help but get emotional. I know how hard it is. I've been there. We've struggled here wondering how we're going to get through. It's just nice to help somebody." Prado says the burger, fries and drink come with no strings attached.

The reaction he's getting is priceless. Prado says, "It's amazing. I get messages later and they are thanking me. Some say they were worried if they could pay their electric bill or the food bill. Now, they say their kids went home and ate and had leftovers."
