BRIDGEPORT - With Thanksgiving just around the corner, hundreds gathered in Bridgeport today for the Kitchen of Hope Feeding Program.

Brown says 14 turkeys, 15 chickens, 40 pounds of candied yams and 20 cakes were given out to families in need.

Guests say they consider this church like a second home for the holidays.
