About once a week, 4-year-old Austin Perine of Birmingham, Alabama, dresses up in a superhero cape and delivers chicken sandwiches to the homeless, CBS Evening News reported.

Its just the right thing to do, Austin told CBS.

After every sandwich he hands out, Austin tells the recipient, dont forget to show love. Austin also introduces himself as President Austin. According to TJ Perine, Austins father, Austin believes its the presidents job to help feed the homeless.
