Giving Thanks By Feeding (Lots of) People

by | Nov 25, 2014

Thanksgiving isn’t until Thursday, but that doesn’t mean there hasn’t already been a heck of a lot of turkey served up in recent days.

Last Thursday, Swift Community Center hosted 130 seniors at its annual meal – about 30 more than usual, according to Human Services Director Erin McAndrew.

On Sunday, at Finn’s Harborside, Mark and Carole Finn teamed up with the irrepressible Gary Hopp (& Friends) to feed 300 people for free throughout the day and provide a boatload of entertainment to boot. Watch the video above for a taste.

Then, on Monday night, Christ Community Kitchen served up turkey tetrazzini for 100.

Those, of course, are just the prepared meals. The town also delivers the fixings for a Thanksgiving meal to many residents. And the EG Interfaith Food Pantry has doled out dozens of turkeys too.

As Hopp put it Sunday, “It’s just giving back so that people feel some love maybe … in a way they hadn’t before.”

Turkey Tetrazzini served up at Christ Community Kitchen at St. Luke’s Monday night by members of EG United Methodist Church.
