Black Couple Who Own Restaurant That Caters To The Homeless Partners With Indie Artist To Raise Funds

As the beloved Drexell and Honeybee’s, a top-notch soul-food restaurant with a donation-only policy, was hit especially hard during the pandemic, one musician is on a mission to keep the local institution alive by offering $1 downloads of his new song that serves as a tribute to the spirit, charity and togetherness the restaurant has shown the community over the years.

The song ‘I Was Hungry (and You Fed Me)’ by Maxamiliano Nealon is a moving homage to the restaurant that’s served as a safe haven for those in need of a hot meal and has touched many lives over the past years. Owners Lisa and Freddie Thomas-McMillan have enthusiastically embraced the song and as passionate music lovers themselves; they see it as a unique opportunity to raise awareness of their mission. The song can be purchased for $1 and downloaded here: https://maximilianonealon.bandcamp.com/track/i-was-hungry-and-you-fed-me.
