If you like your food made with love, then this is the restaurant for you–and it all came to restaurant owner Ruth Thompson in a dream.

Hugs café in McKinney, Texas has hired 24 adults with special needs to be trained for jobs preparing and serving lunch to the community every day.

“We’re conforming our tasks to meet their abilities,” Ms. Thompson told WFAA. ArcBARKS-group-shot-facebook-cropped

In addition to food prep in the kitchen, there’s a lot of dancing, laughing—and yes, hugging.

Joan Smiley, a mother whose daughter is being trained at Hugs said, “She becomes alive again. She gets her happy giggle back.”

The grand opening is projected for sometime this month.
