Loves Park Church Serves Free Meal

LOVES PARK (WIFR) -- Organizers at St. Chad Episcopal Church hosted their 7th-annual free Thanksgiving dinner.

On the menu was turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberries and pumpkin pie.

We caught up with one of the volunteers who's been doing this since the beginning.

She tells us they feed more and more people each year.

Trisha Neujahr says, "We've seen a great increase in demand, due to the gas prices going up, the food prices going up, people not being able to provide for themselves, so there has been a severe increase over the last 6 years."

Volunteers there say they've served too many people to count.
