Church event provides people with free Thanksgiving meals Tuesday

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Long lines formed at Lawndale Baptist Church in Greensboro Tuesday morning as they prepared to provide those in need with a box of food.

The church, who has participated in "Feeding the 5,000" for the last eight years, will give away 1,000 boxes. Each one feeds a family of five.

"There are people in our community in need and this is our opportunity to provide for them,” said church member Kent Harrison. "And especially in a time like this is holiday and family coming in.”

The church began giving the boxes out at 9 a.m. and will continue until they run out.
