Kellita Whisnant, a single mother of four, a Liberian immigrant and the owner of Mama Ti's restaurant in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota prepares food in the restaurant's kitchen. She serves Liberian food, primarily, and attributes recent business losses to a fear of Ebola. This July, she changed the name of the restaurant, which was started by her mother, to Mami Ti's Kitchen and Deli, removing the word "African."

Thousands of people have died in West Africa this year from the largest Ebola outbreak on record.
