He’d bake muffins for the homeless and now it’s turning into a national movement


( CNN) When Jacob Kaufman first stumbled upon the skill of muffin baking, he never imagined he’d turn into the “Muffin Man.”

It was sundown after Yom Kippur, and Kaufman was stand in his uncle’s kitchen watching him whip up a creamy, muffin smash. Kaufman had never stimulated muffins before, so he decided to give it a try. He concluded a recipe online, and voila. A dozen apple cinnamon muffins were made.

Later, as he trod down the street of San Francisco, he discovered a few people who were homeless and offered some of his muffins.
