Girl Scouts Cook Community Holiday Meal
But, the girls weren't the only ones preparing food for the annual "Everyone Eats" free meal.
"Some of my staff from Longhorn here have volunteered their time," Bill Sullivan said. "There are a lot of friends of [First Ward Councilwoman] Almeta [Crayton] in the community that are here. There's a Boys' Club group that's here."
From turkey to ham to green beans and corn bread, the hard work will pay off. After a day and a half of preparing food, volunteers hope to feed at least 300 people throughout the community.
"I think it's important because there's a lot of people that don't get to eat, and so when you help, it helps them get food to eat," Shanay said.
The free Thanksgiving meals will be available Thursday starting at 11 a.m. in Everett's Restaurant, 1601 Range Line St., at 12 p.m. in Lou's Lounge, 1020 E. Walnut St., and at 4 p.m. in St. Francis House, 913 Range Line St.
