A Kenosha woman is determined to ensure that the homeless and those who have fallen on hard times have a meal to eat. For a few hours each day, Arnetta Griffin stands near the intersection of 61st Street and 22nd in Kenosha to pass out food to those who are hungry.

"She’s the angel of this town, she’s the angel," said Leroy Carr Jr when describing Arnetta.

Arnetta started God's Kitchen, a non-profit organization three-years-ago. She says that feeding others is important to her because she knows what it's like to go hungry.

"Back years ago when my kids was little we used to be homeless we used to go to the soup kitchen," said Arnetta.

Since the COVID-19 outbreak, she has seen an increase in the need for food. Everyday, she hands out between 40-50 meals and if they run out of food, Arnetta and her son purchase additional tacos at a local restaurant to make sure no leaves hungry.

"My heart feels rejoiced and happy because I know that they are not out here hungry," said Arnetta.

Arnetta said this is what community is all about, looking out for one another especially during times of a crisis.

"Come together and love each other, that’s it because it definitely made a difference in my life," said Arnettta.
