Cancelled US wedding leads to a feast for the homeless

19 October 2015, 11:18

Sacramento - After a California couple called off their wedding, the bride-to-be's family decided to turn the $35 000 extravagant event into a feast for the homeless.

The bride's mother, Kari Duane, said on Sunday that rather than cancel the reception, they invited Sacramento's homeless for a once in a lifetime meal on Saturday at the Citizen Hotel, one of the city's finest venues.

KCRA-TV reports that single people, grandparents and whole families with newborns enjoyed a meal that included appetizers, salad, gnocchi, salmon, and even tri-tip sirloin. Some even dressed up for the occasion.

Erika Craycraft arrived with her husband and five children. She says her family often struggles to eat three meals a day.

She says the Duanes' decision to share the banquet with the less fortunate was a "really giving, really kind" gesture.
