It was a full Thanksgiving feast and a full house at this years Salvation Army Thanksgiving dinner.  Volunteers dished out turkey, stuffing, and all the fixings to more than 600 people.

To help make the meal more accessible the organization changed the hours. The change also helped add the number of volunteers. More than 200 helped out and served.

Salvation Army Minster Major Tim Grider said the change was necessary.

"In the past we served less and we are here to help everyone," he said. "We need to be there for all those who need to eat." "A lot of people came here for the fellowship and not just the food."

The Salvation Army also serves Christmas dinner and provides food boxes to individuals in need.
