Feed the Hungry holds annual Thanksgiving meal as drive-thru giveaway

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - Savannah Feed the Hungry continued to make sure thousands are fed in our area this holiday season.

Tuesday they gave away thousands of meals at the John Delaware Community Center in Savannah.

Feed The Hungry’s event was in partnership with The CMA, CGM Group, a company that works in shipping and logistics.

A representative from the company says that she’s grateful to give a Thanksgiving dinner to many who wouldn’t have one otherwise.

“You know, heaving 18 pound turkeys, you get tired, but when someone shows that level of need and gratitude, you’ll heave them all day long because you know you’ve made a difference, and that your company has made a difference,” said Amber Leonard.

Leonard says Tuesday’s event is part of a larger company initiative to feed 35,000 Americans this Thanksgiving.
