Thanksgiving is going to be especially busy for the Friendship Inn this weekend with as many as 1300 people expected to show up on holiday Monday.
Executive Director Sandra Stack said their doors are open to everyone and they have a ‘no questions asked’ policy.
“We know one in three children are living in poverty,” she said. “We are serving 80 to 100 kids breakfast every day and we see that number rise consistently.” “Our need has no season. We serve 1,000 meals a day.”
Stack said they could use more turkeys, pies and volunteers.
“We only have two pies, so we need more by this weekend,” she said.
Last year they served 1100 people Turkey dinner.
Stack said 60 turkeys are thawing, 100 pounds of potatoes are ready to be boiled and a soup pot of gravy is ready to go.
“Come out and enjoy the meal with some great people,” she said.
