On Thursday, Mother Marianne’s West Side Kitchen welcomed those in need for a hot Thanksgiving meal.
Volunteers spent their Thanksgiving Day serving mashed potatoes, corn, stuffing, and of course turkey. All of the food was donated locally.
The food kitchen served more than 100 meals, and this was the second year they’ve held their Thanksgiving dinner.
“We were lucky enough to serve 175 meals today in about an hour and 15 minutes,” said Edward Morgan, director of Mother Marianne’s West Side Kitchen. “Eighteen to 20 pound turkeys, 80 pounds potatoes, a boatload of stuffing and gravy, a lot of donations and it was put on pretty much all by donated food.”
Mother Marianne’s West Side Kitchen plans on hosting this event next year as well.
