BRIDGEPORT -

New Hope Missionary Baptist Church served a Thanksgiving dinner Friday to over 100 needy people in Bridgeport.

"The majority of the people are very grateful they're happy, you know people just sitting, usually they eat and leave but today it’s like a family day,” says the church’s kitchen supervisor.

She says she's grateful for the donations that made the dinner possible.

“This I do from my heart because I really enjoy it, I really like to cook and it’s a good feeling at the end of the day."

It took the staff two days to prepare for the meal.
