Turkey Leg Hut founders Lynn and Nakia Price spend Christmas Day donating food and money to families in need
Lynn and Nakia Price gathered around 10 a.m. at their restaurant in the 4800 block of Almeda Road to hand out 500 of their world-famous turkey thighs, fresh beef from Price Farm, two cows and cash to families in need.
Lynn said the meat should last about two to three months.
“So it’s not just about today,” Lynn said. “We want to fill people’s freezers for a while.”
The Price family started their donation day in the Third Ward and traveled downtown to feed the homeless.
“Our family has always found it more rewarding to give than to receive,” said Nakia. “We feel so lucky to have grown our business to this level. We want to use this Christmas to give gifts to others and share our blessings with the community.”
Lynn and Nakia first showed Texans their mouthwatering turkey thighs in a parking lot at the Houston Rodeo in 2015.
“We have been blessed, so we want to be a blessing to others,” Nakia said. “We want to take this opportunity to teach our children to give back and that it’s not just about them. It’s not always about receiving.”
The Price family is no stranger to generosity. They have donated nearly 10,000 turkey thighs at their Thanksgiving events, as well as other occasions, over the past few years.
