GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Over 4,000 meals will be prepared for the community Thursday during the 27th annual Thanksgiving Day Feast for the Community.
The feast is hosted by Community Tables and held all day at the Greensboro Coliseum.
Meals will also be served at First Presbyterian Church from noon-2 p.m. and Congregational United Church of Christ from 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m.
Greensboro Urban Ministry will also be serving during their normal hours at the Potter’s House.
All food will be prepared and distributed to others throughout the city by teams of volunteers representing Senior Resources, Triad Health Project and Delancey Street.
People are invited to join them at any of the locations to give thanks together, celebrate fellowship and be served a traditional Thanksgiving meal in a warm and inviting setting.
The effort is being coordinated by First Presbyterian Church and StepUp Ministry with the goal of providing a Thanksgiving meal for those who may not have the means, a home, are faced with financial challenges, or might be alone on this holiday.
The meals will be served at Mullin Life Center (at First Presbyterian Church) and also provided to organizations such as Meals on Wheels, Triad Health Project and the Servant's Center.
Food-related expenses are funded through donations to The Holiday Fund, managed by the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro.
