'Nobody Wants to Eat Alone': Officer Pictured Sharing Meal With Homeless Man

OCALA, FL- Heartwarming photos of a Florida police officer sharing a meal with a homeless man have gone viral. 

TiAnna Greene posted the images of the pair on Facebook, writing "I don't know this officer, but, I admire her today and everyday. It appeared that she purchased this gentleman's breakfast and decided to sit down and have breakfast with him."

The Ocala Police Department identified the officer in the photos as Sgt. Erica Hay, who said she noticed the homeless man while she was on her way to get breakfast. 

"We're not a large community so I know most everybody, especially the homeless in the area, but I didn't know him," Hay told TODAY.com. "He was just there by himself alone, so I just grabbed food and went back to eat with him. Nobody wants to eat alone ... I like eating with anybody."
