Lakinda Burrell has three passions, Alabama football, loving others, and cooking. Lakinda is able to access two of those passions daily as she ministers to the women at the Reprieve. She nourishes them emotionally and physically through her cooking and involvement in their recovery. Lakinda often says that “you eat with your eyes, not just your mouth.” She takes pride in cooking and serving locally grown produce, homemade lunches, and dinner to help the women begin to heal and take note of the importance of putting healthy foods into their bodies. As a native of Tuscaloosa, she feels passionate about her city and helping those in her community. Lakinda is a vital part of our team at the Reprieve for Women.
