Support a Local Black-Owned Business: Big Mama’s Kitchen 

In March of 2018, Omaha said goodbye to Patricia “Big Mama” Barron. For years, Big Mama served soulful food with a level of kindness and compassion which became a greater part of her legacy than the recipes that earned her numerous shout outs from The Food Network*1. Patricia’s family knew that Omaha needed Big Mama, and so they took up the reigns. Today, the family runs Big Mama’s Kitchen, as well as a scholarship in Patricia’s name, offering an opportunity to attend Metro’s Culinary Arts Program. To contribute to the fund, visit the donation page.
