LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The Salvation Army is just one group providing a Thanksgiving meal for many of the area's less fortunate.
It expects to serve about five hundred people on Thursday. The meal includes turkey and stuffing and cranberry sauce, and many other traditional dishes.
Most of the food was actually prepared by the Sullivan University Bakery. More than 50 volunteers brought the food to the Salvation Army.
Even the plates, napkins, and flatware were donated by local businesses.
Major Michael Hawley, the Louisville Area Commander, said Thursday, "You know who smiles the most? People who get a good meal. They're enjoying that, they're smiling. But also the people who volunteer to help and give other people something. They're smiling even more."
The Salvation Army is also delivering three hundred holiday meals to Dosker Manor, a low-income facility for seniors.
At Wayside Christian Mission, the work began early, with a Thanksgiving breakfast for the homeless that began at 5 a.m. The meal included sausage and eggs, pancakes, and biscuits and gravy.
The meal was served at Wayside's Hotel Louisville location on West Broadway and featured linen tablecloths, china, glassware, and silverware.
Thanksgiving lunch and supper were to include both turkey and smoked barbecue. People were also to receive coats collected by Southeast Christian Church, the Christian Academy of Louisville, and other groups.
At St. Vincent DePaul on Jackson Street, the poor and homeless were to be served a holiday meal of turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, and other traditional meals.
Amvets Post 61 on Smyrna Parkway wanted to make sure veterans and active military weren't forgotten on Thanksgiving. It's serving 75 people who can't be home for the holidays.
