(Scroll down for video) Homeless people are not welcomed at one Taco Bell in California.

A 16-year-old boy was enjoying his food at Taco Bell, when he heard a store employee telling his manager that there was a homeless man in their dumpster.

The manager at the Redding Taco Bell told his employee to close the dumpster latch and lock the gate.

The teenager, who heard the conversation, was identified as Jacob Cook. He decided to follow the Taco Bell employee.

Cook was shocked to see that the employee locked the dumpster without speaking to the homeless man inside.

The heroic teen called police. While waiting for police to arrive, Cook heard the homeless man banging on the dumpster, in an attempt to get out.

Cook’s kindness did not end there. He has befriended the homeless man who was identified as Josh.

Cook bought the homeless man a cup of coffee and a $35 pair of shoes. Shockingly, Cook was banned from the Taco Bell location.
