Kenosha woman honored with MLK Humanitarian Award for helping the homeless

KENOSHA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A Kenosha woman is honored for helping the homeless.

Arnetta Griffin was one of three local residents awarded the MLK Humanitarian Award on Monday.

Griffin started "God's Kitchen" last May, a facility that provides 2 meals a day and clothing to the community's most vulnerable.

"He wanted us to come together as one, all colors, and we are coming together as one ever since I've been feeding the homeless. I've been seeing how many different people are coming together," Said Arnetta Griffin, the founder of God's Kitchen.

When we first spoke with Griffin, she was cooking out of her home but had to stop because of health department rules.

Since then, people have donated a van and provided her with a kitchen where she now serves up to 100 meals a day.
