During the holiday centered around the meal, the Beth-El Center in Milford made sure people suffering from food insecurity will still be able to celebrate.
Nearly 80 Thanksgiving meals were passed out at the Beth-El Center, while Dockside Brewery was on hand to prepare the food.
Jennifer Paradis, executive director of the Beth-El Center, says year-round, the center provides emergency food and shelter services to neighbors, veterans, families and youth.
This year, people were able to pick up more than a turkey -- they got some pantry items and a chance to grab a coat and hats as well. They also offered up delivery for those who couldn't make it to the drive.
Al May, president of Devon Rotary, has been part of a partnership with the center for the last decade.
"The ability to do this today and help other people who may not get a meal if it weren't for us, makes you feel good, and makes you enjoy your own Thanksgiving that much more," says May.
The center says the Milford community has come together to make sure people know where their next meal is coming from not just today, but every day.
