D.C. Restaurant Participates in Nationwide Meal Distribution Program

Mr. Braxton Bar and Kitchen, a Black-owned restaurant in Washington, recently served 700 free meals to D.C. residents, front-line workers and emergency first responders as part of a nationwide meal distribution program in which seven other Black-owned eateries participated.

“We really wanted to make sure that we could get those meals out to those individuals in need,” Booker Parchment, owner of Mr. Braxton Bar and Kitchen, told The Grio.

Parchment teamed with the D.C. alumni chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc., which helped set up distribution centers at Howard University Hospital Center, Washington Hospital Center and other locations, The Grio reported.

Amazon Prime Video provided funding and staff from its Black Employee Network in support of the program, The Grio reported.
