Good Samaritan can be a business.

Chances are the food would have had to be thrown out anyways so may as well help people

That's called REALLY good PR for this grocery store

Good going

This is the best story I've heard in a long time. If I lived in Tx, I would definitely use that store.

Imagine spending a thousand dollars on groceries and one hour later everything is free.

Yep that food would of went bad in the store. It would of cost the store lots of money to get rid of spoiled food

Nice to hear a touching story like this… I'm American but live outside the country. From the news over the last few years, the USA has a reputation for hating foreigners, separating kids from parents at the border and locking up kids in cages, murders, poverty and lack of healthcare, etc… The news show the USA to be a heartless hateful country. I always tell people, the news is true, and I'm afraid there is quite a bit of ignorance in the USA but when I go back to visit family, strangers are kind, thoughtful, polite and willing to help out. There are so many good people in the USA.

Alright Texas need to grow some balls us Northerns have never gotten that special treatment

what he's describing is how you're supposed to help people figure out how to get through public health emergencies .. not pitting business against people

HEB really proved that it is a humanitarian example of giving help to the needy you I applaud them they are such a good example putting human lives above profit and money making by allowing these customers to get their food without paying

Jessie Joseph February 23, 2021 - 11:45 PM

We need good news

Del Gar February 23, 2021 - 11:50 PM
