Some families seek out community-based Thanksgiving dinners because they need a safe place for their family to gather for a meal, because they’re looking to enjoy the holiday with others in the community, because this year the cost of preparing the meal is a difficult stretch or all of the above.  There's a wide variety of free meals being offered Saturday, November 21 through Friday, November 27.
