Way back in 1990, Al and Debbie Bandy, of Newton, NC, started cooking a Thanksgiving day meal for the community. They served about 125 people that first year. Today, with the help of volunteers, they expect to serve over 500 people. And they deliver, too!
The dinner is held every other year (and this is the year!) at First United Methodist Church, located at 300 North Main Ave, Newton, NC.
Takeout is from 11:00 am to 12:00pm today and dine in is from 11:30am to 12:30pm today.
So, who do they serve? Anyone! "It's for people who don't want to cook, can't afford it financially or don't have someone to eat with." says Debbie.
If you ever think that you can't make a difference, think about what this one family has done for their community on Thanksgiving. You can make a difference!
