Vesko Valchev, Toronto Refugee Hot Dog Vendor, Serves Up More Than Just Street Meat

Meet Toronto's spiritual hot dog vendor.

Vesko Valchev left his home country of Bulgaria for Canada not in hopes of more money but for more freedom.

But he soon lost everything upon arrival.

After going through a severe depression, Valchev found a new outlook on life. One that he's serving it up with every meal at his hot dog stand in Toronto.

"I make the foundation, my own foundation, to feed people free on the street. A month later I feel more and more alive, and I discovered that when I give, I start to be alive," Valchev explains to HuffPost Rise.

Watch the video above to learn more about Valchev's incredible mission.
