(CNN) – Inspired by a restaurant while traveling in Australia, David Wade McCullough decided to adopt this philosophy serving food with no set prices on the menu.
He started Food Karma in Albuquerque three years ago. What started as a pop-up stand quickly grew. Three years later, Food Karma has found a place to call home. Karma Café officially opened for business this past week.
Some loyal customers have been there since the beginning. “My family has been getting breakfast from them at the grower’s market since they started,” said Luke Resnick.
McCullough says running Karma Cafe and Food Karma has really confirmed his belief that people want to do good. “Most people are fair and honest and want to contribute. Even if people are say homeless or struggling, they still want to contribute or pay what they can.”
He says some days are lean, but says the reason why he continues to do it is very simple. “Giving people a place, a safe place where they can come and have something to eat.”
