Anonymous Donor Buying Meals for West Des Moines Police Department

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa -- A local police department is receiving support from the community.

The owner of Mixed, a restaurant in Des Moines, received a unique order this week.

An anonymous good Samaritan hired Mixed to cater breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the West Des Moines Police Department.

Employees have been busy making salads, wraps, and paninis -- which will be delivered to all employees of the department during each shift...

“I told the person who called I said ‘let me give you a discount for doing this, this is great’ but she wouldn`t let me. She said ‘I want to pay full price, this is all from me,’” said Mike Hopson, owner of Mixed.

Hopson said the anonymous customer wanted members of the department to know how much they are appreciated for the demanding jobs they do.
