We've all heard it before, "There is no such thing as a free lunch."  While it might be true, a Montgomery woman gives the saying a new meaning. 

During lunchtime in the Capitol city, a woman decides to spend it reading her bible and eating in the park. But,  when she arrived something happened. A homeless man asked her for her lunch.

"He came up to her and asked her for her lunch and at first she walked away but then she said I could not do it, I wanted to give it to him.  I wanted to share it"

She did, and it created a hunger for Bonnie Brown to do more.  She went back to her desk and Googled homeless shelters in Montgomery.  She came up with the idea to create a garden at a mission.  Her sunday school class jumped on the idea to help. For that reason, Tina Carter will pass along 120 dollar to her sunday school classmate for her kindness.

We caught up with Bonnie Brown at work and  to her surprise she said the money could not have come at a better time. They need it for supplies...to keep the garden growing.

"We've been very blessed. There have been road blocks along the way that I couldn't break but God did."

 With a few seeds of faith, a garden now grows in Montgomery to help a host of people who can now help feed themselves.
