Announcing a New DC Vendor: Granny’s Kitchen

Announcing a New DC Vendor: Granny’s Kitchen

Breadcoin Foundation, Ltd. welcomes a food truck, Granny’s Kitchen, to our vendor choices. Granny’s has hours on Sundays (and some Saturdays) at Penn Branch Shopping Center at 3200 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE. 

They are also available for mobile events at which someone is feeding the community.

Feedback from those who’ve had their Southern food made from grandmothers’ recipes is glowing. And reports are that they have super efficient ordering and order-filling methods to feed lots of folks in a hurry.

With a passion for reconciliation and bringing the community together over food, this new vendor (for us) does so much more than feed people, and their vision is so resonant with Breadcoin’s!
