A new soul food restaurant is now open in Downtown Duluth.

Doc Witherspoon's Soul Food Shack opened up their doors on Monday.

They offer all sorts of different soul foods like fried chicken, catfish, and all sorts of different sides as well.

Owner Stephan Witherspoon says he hopes his restaurant helps bring the community together.

"We love people. We love feeding people, but also though, we're there. We are one community, and it's humanity, and so let's all be kind, eat together, laugh together, cry together, and let's just all live life to the fullest," said Witherspoon.

Witherspoon says he wants people to try his food, so he isn't going to charge regular prices this week.

Donations will be accepted.

According to their website, they will be open from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM seven days a week.
