Restaurant Gives Free Food To First Responders Of A New Jersey Train Crash

Restoring your faith in humanity.

Just as people people generously donated food and coffee to first responders after bombings in New York, a Hoboken, N.J., restaurant's initiative after a train crash proves that one kind act can make a big difference.

One person is dead and 108 people are reportedly injured after a New Jersey Transit commuter train crashed into the Hoboken station on Thursday morning. Dozens of first responders risked their lives to help people, which is why many people thanked them on Twitter.


But one restaurant went above and beyond giving thanks — it donated food.

Tony Boloney's in Hoboken announced on Facebook on Thursday morning that it was bringing free pizza and subs to the first responders at the train station. It also said that first responders and survivors were welcome to use the shop for anything that they needed.

"All about the community," a representative from Tony Boloney's wrote to A Plus.

The kind act from Tony Boloney's also reportedly encouraged other local restaurants to do the same thing.
