WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Around 20 percent of people in the Triad are living in poverty — meaning they struggle to put meals on the table every day.
So 150 volunteers at Wake Forest University are stepping in to help.
Student volunteers make sure any leftover food from their dining halls goes to hungry people in the Triad.
For the first time this year, they are helping to make the food.
Students will spend the next few days getting ready for their annual Turkey-Palooza, making more than 400 Thanksgiving dinners that will be delivered to those who need it most.
