Nana’s Southern Kitchen gives out 400 meals Christmas Day

KENT, Wash. — Four hundred people were able to enjoy a Christmas meal courtesy of Nana’s Southern Kitchen in Kent and the restaurant’s community partners.

From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., the restaurant prepared takeout meals for the public.

The restaurant asked partakers to wear a mask.

The free meals that were given out on Christmas Day is an annual event that continues in the welcoming spirit of Nana’s namesake Myrtle Henderson, according restaurant co-owner Todd Minor.

“My great grandmother, Nana, used her food to bring people together, teach life lessons and welcomed everyone,” Minor said. “Service was in my great-grandma’s DNA. She made sure everyone always had a full belly whether they were going to work, church or school. We do the same, ensuring our customers get exceptional service, even while on the go with our takeout meals.”
