Diane and Kendall McMiller, the owners of D&K Salads and Catering in Gary's Miller neighborhood, plan to serve 500 dinners to the community Monday.

They will give out the heat-and-serve meals from noon to 3 p.m. at their restaurant at 625 Lake St. in Gary. They will provide the needy with meals with traditional holiday staples like turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes. 

"The McMillers opened D&K in summer 2020 during the pandemic," WLTH Station Manager Natalie F. Ammons said in a news release. "They said the wanted to give back to the community. They were able to reach out to citizens in the community who will also be assisting. Nora Glenn reached out the Miller Next Door members and they have donated goody bags with various items. Other donated money. It has truly been an outpouring of love."

D&K Salads also will give away new coats and shoes for children while supplies last.

The restaurant, which started in Illinois three years ago and relocated to Miller's main commercial strip this year, specializes in healthy fare like salads, seafood, wraps and smoothies. It also serves soul food bowls, Johnny Cake sandwiches, and vegan and vegetarian fare.
