YAKIMA-- One new business in Yakima may soon be hurting amid a state-wide shutdown of all dine-in services for restaurants and bars, but it hasn't stopped them from giving back to those in need.
The Lab has been open for less than a month, and the new rule will certainly be changing things for Shawn Niles, also known as the Fat Pastor, and his employees.
Despite less business than usual, they're donating free lunches to older folks living at a senior housing complex across the street.
Niles says, instead of worrying about what they'll be losing, they're trying to figure out how they can give.
"We have neighbors that can't have people coming in and taking care of them. They're older, they're in that danger zone population, so we've made a commitment that every day this week, the people who live in Mable Swan right across the road, they get to come in and have a free meal every single day," says Niles.
Of course, those orders will have to be taken to go.
