A 5-year-old Alabama boy's touching request to feed a homeless man has gone viral.

According to WSFA in Montgomery, Josiah Duncan and his mother, Ava Faulk, were at a Waffle House in Prattville when they saw a disheveled man outside holding a bag and a bicycle.

Josiah immediately began asking his mom about the man's appearance. When Faulk said he was homeless, Josiah asked her what that meant.

"Well, that means he doesn't have a home," Faulk said.

Josiah asked more questions – "Where is his house? Where is his family?" – and pointed out something that really bothered him: The man had no food.

Josiah asked his mom to buy the man a meal, and she happily agreed.

"He came in and sat down, and nobody really waited on him," Faulk told WSFA. "So Josiah jumped up and asked him if he needed a menu because you can't order without one." 

The man was worried about ordering something too expensive, but Faulk told him that he could get whatever he wanted.

"'Can I have bacon?'" Faulk said he asked. "And I told him, 'Get as much bacon as you want.'"

Before the meal, Josiah said the blessing with the man as the other patrons watched.

"The man cried. I cried. Everybody cried," Faulk said.
