Friends and co-workers got together and made a huge dinner. We gathered up my camp stove and took it to the inner city of Baltimore and fed the homeless the hung around in the park. It was a good feeling. This was before soup kitchens began showing up around towns. So those folks were thankful. Met some really nice people that day too.

Yes, when I was single and not getting along with my family. I worked at a soup type kitchen giving out free holiday meals. It was actually a good time, and made me feel good about my situation.

I don't help people who don't help themselves.

I did share my time at LINK on Thanksgiving a couple of years ago. Actually they shared with me.......there are members of my immediate family who have chosen to estrange themselves from me (probably for self-preservation due to my own bad behaviors....), but not having them in my life makes holidays a little sad and lonely.........so sharing with others, especially families with small children was very comforting and rewarding for me...as I said, the "gift" was really from the participants.

I usually wind up delivering food from a food drive where I work to ECKAN just before Thanksgiving, but I haven't help serve a meal.

Last year, it was an enjoyable day to gather foods and to distribute in a poor neighborhood of Philadelphia. I plan to do the same this year.
