If you’re a do-gooder, going out to dinner can sometimes feel gluttonous. Not at The King’s Kitchen. Owner Jim Noble opened the restaurant as a nonprofit, and recently won an award for its role in the community. You’ll never know it from the service, but the staff includes troubled youth, former inmates, and others who needed a second chance. All of the proceeds from King’s Kitchen go to helping feed the hungry.
