McDonald’s Refuses To Serve The Homeless? Teen Unable To Buy Homeless Man Hot Meal Because Of ‘New Policy’

A McDonald's in Manchester refused to allow a teen to buy a meal, which was for a homeless man, due to their new policy, but there was a slight miscommunication between staff members.

The Manchester Evening News reports that staff members at McDonald's believed that the new policy says they are not allowed to serve the homeless when in fact, they were misinformed.

However, what she learned after trying to buy the homeless man a meal left her in complete and utter shock.

A staff member at the McDonald's told her that they were unable to serve her because she was buying the meal for the homeless man. They went on to say that McDonald's new policy says that they are no longer serving the homeless.

"We queued up and the homeless guy tried to get some money out before I told him I was paying. Then the supervisor said 'we don't serve homeless people,'" Farrow said.

"He said the business manager told them they weren't allowed to serve homeless people. They said it was a new policy."

"It was his attitude towards the guy - we were both customers so there shouldn't be any difference."

"I think it's absolutely awful and completely immoral," she continued.

"We're all human beings. I wouldn't expect to be treated like that. If they're refusing to serve homeless people it's extremely judgmental."

They also stated that the policy was not communicated properly, and that all staff members will relearn the policy.

"We welcome all customers through our doors and work hard to create a friendly and welcoming environment for all," the spokesperson said.

"We can confirm that it is not McDonald's policy to refuse to serve homeless people and apologize for any confusion caused."

"We will be reiterating this policy to all team members."
