GREENSBORO, N.C. — A Greensboro church is replicating a popular Bible story in an effort to feed thousands for Thanksgiving.

Lawndale Baptist Church began distributing the turkey dinners at 9 a.m. for their annual Feeding the 5,000 program.  Following a worship service, the first 1,000 people to show up at the church will each receive a dinner box.

The boxes — filled with turkey, stuffing, beans, potatoes and pies — are each equipped to feed a family of five.

The first man to line up arrived at 1:30 a.m. Tuesday.

In the videos above, FOX8′s Nicole Ferguson speaks with some folks in line.
