Around 500 people to receive Thanksgiving meals at New Covenant Center in Stamford

Around 500 people will receive a Thanksgiving turkey, along will all the fixings and even a gift card to ShopRite from the New Covenant Center in Stamford.
Workers are preparing for the center's annual Thanksgiving meal distribution.
New Covenant Center executive director John Gutman says about 150 families per week come for groceries in the center's food pantry and about 200 people come for lunch and dinner every day.
The center's guests will leave with a turkey and all the fixings, thanks to donations from Connecticut Foodshare and the Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County.
They'll be given a gift card to ShopRite, too.
Around 500 people in need will come through the doors this week.
