Gerron Board and his girlfriend decided to go into business together doing something they love.

""We wanted to try to make sure we could both do something that we like doing, and we both like cooking," Board told WDRB.

They opened Soulful Choices a couple of months ago and the're already making an impact in their community. When they're not serving customers daily at the hot spots in downtown Louisville, they're helping the under served.

"You don't know who's eating and who's not. So, we had extra money, profit money that we've made, and we decided to go to the store this morning, buy a lot of food and come out and help and give a lot of food out. It's going to be every time we can. We're going to make sure we do our part," Board said.

"You don't just do stuff for people who can do something for you. You don't do something for someone and expect things in return," he said.

Board's generosity and compassion for the city's homeless has earned him the nickname "The Soulman".

"It's a blessing. God bless him," said Todd Mingus, who is homeless.

"I just want to make sure that while I'm in a position to help, even if it's just food, if I have enough money to take out and help people who are in need, it makes me feel great," Board said.
