Volunteers help serve free meals to community members

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Thanksgiving is day for giving thanks, but it is also a day for giving back to the community.

Several residents spent their Thanksgiving morning hours serving free home-cooked Thanksgiving meals to people in the area.

Teresa’s Restaurant, Lisa’s Fifth Street Diner and a local church provided meals to people in need or who just simply wanted a nice warm meal with the community.

Smiles and laughter poured from the guests receiving a hot and yummy meal.

Volunteers were offering the same joy as they served with full hearts.

Restaurant’s started preparing meals early yesterday in order to be ready for the holiday.

Teresa’s served around 450 plates to locals.
