Kenosha woman's efforts to feed the homeless grow


A Kenosha woman working to provide meals to homeless people in the Uptown neighborhood now has a website to help facilitate donations.

Arnetta Griffin has been delivering home-cooked meals twice a day to homeless people and anyone else she finds in need along 22nd Avenue in Uptown for many months.

She hands out free meals she makes in her own kitchen every day at lunch and dinner hours.

Griffin calls her effort, until now aided largely by her own family, God’s Kitchen in Kenosha.

After her story was featured in the Kenosha News, people started reaching out to offer help and donations to aid her efforts. Her new website and Facebook page include contact information so people can drop off supplies or other support.

Big meal on Sunday

Griffin and God’s Kitchen in Kenosha also plan to serve what she is calling a potluck, holiday-style Thankful Meal for the community on Sunday from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. in the Uptown Pantry parking lot, 6119 22nd Ave. The event is free and open to the public. Volunteers are welcome.

“God sent me on a mission to go and start on 60th Street and 22nd Avenue to 63rd Street and 22nd Avenue to feed the unfortunate ones everyday twice a day,” Griffin states on the God’s Kitchen website. “God’s Kitchen is about feeding, clothing and soon to be sheltering the unfortunate ones in our community with love and understanding without judgment or prejudice. God’s Kitchen is for all God’s children.”
