Bangkok 96 In Dearborn Giving Away Free Lunch To Those Without Power
As many Metro Detroit communities are still without power after a midweek winter storm, a Thai restaurant in Dearborn is offering free lunches on Friday. In support of those impacted by Wednesday’s storm, Bangkok 96, located on Telegraph Road just south of Michigan Avenue, is providing free meals on Friday, Feb 24. There are 461,000 DTE Energy customers who are still without power in Southeast Michigan after strong winds and accumulating ice disrupted services on Friday morning. Due to a power outage, the Dearborn restaurant itself was closed on Thursday. Genevieve Vang, who owns the restaurant, said, “It’s important to give back to the community especially when everyone is going through a hard time with the power outage. It’s one less thing for a person or family to have to worry about. We’ve been here for over 20 years and the community has been so supportive during COVID, so this our way giving back and saying thank you for having our back.”
Despite being closed for regular service on Friday, staff will still be distributing free lunch portions to anyone who stops by. Lunches will be served on a first-come, first-served basis starting at noon on Friday. A small, limited selection of meals will be provided. If you are in the area make your way by.
