The door was open to all free of charge this holiday.

Volunteers served up the traditional Thanksgiving meal Thursday afternoon including turkey and all the fixings at the Fulton Soup Kitchen’s annual Thanksgiving Dinner. About 350 people — including those who had meals delivered — ate the annual dinner that was open to anyone in the community. The meal was served at Finally Tammy’s and provided by donations from local businesses, individuals and churches.

Anne Erbschloe, Soup Kitchen director, said it’s important to show people that there are those out there who care that everyone has a Thanksgiving meal.
