"We realized there was a need to provide those in need with warm, cooked food outside of shelters," said Tranita Alexander of Soul in a Bowl. "We often think of conducting food drives during the holidays, but sometimes those in need lack resources or the setup to cook a full Thanksgiving meal."

"We are excited to give back to our community in a unique way, and meet those in need where they are," said Betty Jackson of The Woven. "Whoever needs a hot meal or just friendly faces this holiday are welcome to stop by and grab a plate."
