Good People Doing Good Things — Freddie & Lisa

Posted on October 14, 2020 by jilldennison


This morning I have only one ‘good people’ story to share with you, but I think you’ll agree that this one is priceless, deserving of its own post.
One of my pet peeves, as many of you already know, is people with great wealth.  What pleasure is there in having millions or billions of dollars sitting around doing nothing but earning more money.  I have very little use for the wealthy, especially those who give nothing, do nothing to help those less fortunate.  So, it was with great joy that I read about Freddie and Lisa Thomas-McMillan.  This couple own a restaurant, Drexell & Honeybee’s, in downtown Brewton, Alabama near the Florida border.  What makes them special?  According to their website …
When you enter Drexell & Honeybee’s in downtown Brewton, Alabama, you’ll walk past booths and four-tops full of cornbread, fried chicken, and collard greens. The one thing you won’t find is a checkout register. To owners Lisa and Freddie Thomas-McMillan, food is about the joy of serving others. And that doesn’t come with a price tag.

In fact, there’s only one rule: ‘Everybody eats.’ From Tuesday through Thursday, 11 A.M. – 1 P.M., Drexell & Honeybee’s serves up hot plates to hungry on-comers from all walks of life, whether you can pay for it or not. There are no suggested prices, in fact, no prices of any kind. When you are done with your meal, you simply leave whatever you can – a handful of coins, a generous donation, a hand-written note, or a heartfelt ‘Thank You’. But when you leave, you do so with a full stomach, a full heart, and the understanding that you are loved and worthy of love. You can find soul food all over Alabama. But you won’t find a meal that fills you up quite like this one.
Freddie and Lisa make no profit from their restaurant. 100% of the donations go back into serving people food. So, what do they get from all this? Joy.Good People Doing Good Things — Freddie & Lisa Drexells-store-front-main-photo-1-scaled-1

Lisa’s always had a big heart. Through the years, she’s run a food bank. She’s opened her home to the needy. She says it may have started in second grade when she learned a powerful lesson about sharing from a little girl who always had a better sandwich, but shared it happily with Lisa in a daily trade for some of her peanut butter and jelly.
“‘Feed the Need’ is our mission statement. Whatever needs people have, if we can help them… we will.  When my husband and I opened, we agreed to put a portion of our retirement back into the running of the restaurant… as you can imagine donations are down (due to the pandemic), but we will continue to try and be of service to all the people that come to our door.”
Now, I’m going to ask that you take the 7 minutes to watch this video … I guarantee that you will be glad you did, and that you will fall in love with Lisa!  Oh … and grab your box of tissues before you start … you will need them.

I give two thumbs-up to Freddie and Lisa … these two people are giving of themselves to do for others … these, my friends, are truly good people.
