Tuscaloosa Community Soup Bowl serves hundreds on Thanksgiving
TUSCALOOA COUNTY - AL -
Volunteers at the Tuscaloosa Community Soup Bowl were busy Thursday morning, making sure hundreds of people enjoyed a hot Thanksgiving meal.
Director Amy Grinstead says, "We're serving turkey and dressing, mash potatoes, green beans, rolls and dessert."
The Community Soup Bowl usually has a steady crowd, but since the Salvation Army in Tuscaloosa isn't serving meals, volunteers were prepared to serve more. "This is great, I love to see everybody pitch in and do it, this is truly Gods mission and they are giving the first fruits," says Grinstead.
Ocie Harton, a local man who received dinner says, "I can't be more thankful than to have something to eat."
"This is Thanksgiving, this is the day that we give thanks for all that we have. Gather our families and our loved ones, and just thank God," says Grinstead.
This year, the Community Soup Bowl in Tuscaloosa served 250 plates.
