The Salvation Army is preparing to serve the free traditional Thanksgiving meal Thursday to more than 400 people.
Volunteers have been working for weeks to get a variety of tasty dishes including freshly baked rolls and 50 turkeys ready for all to enjoy. The cooking and baking was carried out under the watchful eye of Executive Chef Robert Ramirez.
"We're going to have pineapple glazed ham, we're going to have the turkey with homemade giblet gravy, homemade stuffing that I make from scratch," Ramirez said. "Everything I make is going to be from scratch."
The Salvation Army dinner will be held at the facility at 17th Street and Avenue J from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The meal is free to everyone. Volunteers are invited to come and help.
