Rangel and wife Nikki took the work into their own hands when they heard a manager of a local sandwich chain remark that he would have to throw any leftover food away and decided to feed the homeless at a local charity shelter.
But the Spaniard says there are more people deserving of adulation than himself: "I am a bit embarrassed, I have mixed emotions. We did not want any press, me and my wife.
"We just did it for the fact we thought at the time it was a good idea, we did not want anything from it.
"We know it has made a big impact, we are grateful that people have appreciated what we have done, but we are embarrassed because we don't deserve it.
"The people who work 24/7 in those shelters deserve more praise than us."
