St. John's Breadline Ready for Thanksgiving Feast
The day before Thanksgiving is usually spent preparing food for the many mouths that need to be fed. If you are busy trying to stuff a turkey or make those homemade mashed potatoes, imagine making enough food to feed about 700 people tomorrow.
Volunteers at the St. John's Breadline have been busy this past week preparing a warm, home-cooked meal for those less fortunate this Thanksgiving.
The supervisor of the Breadline says they have more than 200 turkeys on hand and they made 30 of them to serve tomorrow. Where could all of these birds come from?
"Donations from volunteers bring them in, coorporate offices send them, the department of corrections have partenered with us for almost ten years through the employee benefit fund over Concordia Courts," Breadline supervisor Kevin Kindred said.
The St. John's Breadline will be hosting Thanksgiving from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. tomorrow. Most of the food is already made and ready to go for Springfield residents, and there's still time to help. The Breadline is still taking any food donations for tomorrow and the rest of the holiday season.
