Metro friends are spreading compassion and love one grocery bill at a time.

“I was overwhelmed,” Aprille Franks-Hunt said about the country’s divisiveness following police-involved shootings and the Dallas ambush.

“We just felt there was collective hurt,” said Asa Leveaux, a fellow entrepreneur.

“Black lives matter, All Lives Matter, Blue Lives Matter. I was tired of the debate, I wanted people to love more,” Franks-Hunt said.

This past Sunday, the two decided take $1,000 of their own money and pay for people’s groceries at the Crest in Midwest City and Buy For Less at Martin Luther King Avenue and NE 23 Street.

"I was just in awe, I was totally amazed,” said Crest shopper Trena McAlister.

McAlister walked away with some free items and then took pictures with Franks-Hunt and Leveaux.

Cellphone video shows countless shoppers hugging the two for their generosity.

Franks-Hunt and Leveaux call their act of good will “Sunday Dinner Love.”

The two hope it can be a movement and not just a moment.

“When you do things from your heart, you reach other people’s heart,” said Leveaux.

Already, people are offering to donate money for the next “Sunday Dinner Love” event.
