If it's a hot meal you want on Turkey Day, the Lexington Salvation Army said Wednesday that they want to give it to you.

The charity organization began preparing for the free meal they offer on Thanksgiving Wednesday.

Organizers said more than a hundred volunteers would be milling about the dining room, offering a restaurant-like atmosphere.

"We actually have a host and hostesses who will actually take them to their table and seat them like a restaurant. They get to sit there," said Major Debra Ashcroft, associate area coordinator for the Lexington Salvation Army.

And, said Ashcroft, it won't just be the people who show up that will be fed.

"We'll be delivering meals to about 50 people," said the Major.

The feast, which will be served from noon to one on Thanksgiving, is being catered by Lundy's Catering; breadsticks will be donated by Joe Bologna's.

Each table was decorated with a tablecloth and centerpiece, silverware and napkins.

And, said the staff, it's all in the name of helping those who truly need it.

"We think that everyone should work together and tomorrow on Thanksgiving at 12 noon we'll have everyone working together here to serve people that just need a hot meal," said associate development coordinator Townsend Miller.
