Macon church feeding families for Thanksgiving

The church has been offering free plates to families for nearly ten years.

MACON, Ga. — One Macon church is filling stomachs for Thanksgiving.

The Greater Turner Tabernacle A.M.E Church is having their annual Thanksgiving meal giveaway Thursday, November 24.

The church has been doing this for nearly 10 years on Third Street in downtown Macon.

The dinners are free, and they're hoping to give away 250 plates so families can enjoy the holiday with a nice meal.

Church steward Charles Jackson says the best way to show thanks is by giving.

"No one should be without a meal on Thanksgiving or Christmas," Jackson says.

"Thankful isn't just receiving, thankful is being in the position to give to somebody."

The church will hand out food from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m.
