Tennessee inmate Philip Workman requested that his last meal be a vegetarian pizza donated to any homeless person near prison, but prison official refused (they do not donate to charity, they said)

That apparently upset a few people willing to pay for and deliver a lot of pies themselves.
Homeless shelters across Nashville were inundated with donated pizzas all Wednesday. (Watch homeless feast on piles of pizza Video)
"I was like, 'Wow, Jesus!' " said Marvin Champion, an employee of Nashville's Rescue Mission, which provides overnight shelter, food and assistance to more than 800 homeless people a night.
