SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - Feed the Hungry will host its 13th annual Thanksgiving Holiday Dinner on Tuesday, Nov. 23. The theme for this year’s event is “Hope on a Plate.”

The event will include live performances, health screening, a Kids Zone, several vendors, and a farmers market.

Thousands of turkey donations from CMA CGM and the Georgia Ports Authority will be given out, making this one of the biggest events ever. Families will be able to safely pick up the free turkeys via a drive-thru at Memorial Stadium. Employees of CMA CGM Group will help distribute the food in coordination with Feed the Hungry from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., or while supplies last.

“People that need the food come, the working poor, military, teachers, everybody. You’ve got all types of people that you never know those that are in need. We have a chance to lift someone up, we call it hope on a plate to give them some hope this holiday season,” said State Rep. Carl Gilliard, founder of Feed the Hungry.

At the event, you will be able to get out of your car for the music and entertainment but once your number gets called, you will drive through the stations and stay in your vehicle.

The pre-show starts at 3 p.m. and the main event starts at 4 p.m. outside of Memorial Stadium (GPS: 101 John J Scott Dr, Savannah, GA 31406).
