The final meal request of Philip Workman ended up memorializing him in a way he probably never expected to be remembered – as the posthumous provider of pizza meals to thousands of Nashville homeless the day after his death.
Workman was convicted of killing a police officer during the robbery of a Wendy’s restaurant undertaken when he was addicted to drugs . . . and homeless. He asked that his final meal be a vegetarian pizza. Instead of eating it, he wanted the pizza donated to any homeless person located near Riverbend Maximum Security Institution, where he died last Tuesday by state order.
