Grab a hot dog at this Montgomery restaurant operated exclusively by teenagers!
A couple months ago, we wrote that Bibb St. Pizza Company had teamed up with the Mid-Alabama Coalition for the Homeless (MACH) for what is called the “Slice of Life” program. Customers could spend a little extra dough to have a slice of pizza and water left on hold for any homeless who might need a little help. As it happens, that good will is spreading to another restaurant in Montgomery, the newly opened That’s My Dog, Jr.

Patrick Aitken, who works at MACH, is the mastermind behind this new project; he also set up the Slice of Life program at Bibb St. Pizza. The new effort is called “That’s My Neighbor,” and allows customers the opportunity to leave a full meal for the homeless. The extra cost will be $4.11, which constitutes one sticky note on the wall down at That’s My Dog, Jr. That sticky note represents a Neighbor Dog, bag of chips, and a drink.

The $4.11 price point was chosen to help cover costs associated with the food, of course, but there’s a deeper meaning. Aitken and That’s My Dog, Jr. noticed that it represents multiple verses in the Bible:
1 John 4:11
“Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.”
1 Peter 4:11
“If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen.”
1 Corinthians 4:11
“To this very hour we go hungry and thirsty, we are in rags, we are brutally treated, we are homeless.”
