Â Anyone who is hungry is invited to share a Thanksgiving meal 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday.
Susan Brymer, Executive Director of Christian Ministries of Lincoln County, said the ministry will serve a full traditional Thanksgiving meal on these two days.
â€œWe will have turkey and all the goodies that go along with it,â€ Brymer said.
The soup kitchen of the Lincolnton ministry serves lunch seven days a week, 365 days per year. â€œThe only time weâ€™ve ever closed was due to an ice storm when we didnâ€™t have electricity available,â€ Brymer said.
Brymer said that some people who come out to eat arenâ€™t homeless, but instead may not have a way to cook or may just not want to be alone on the holiday.
All are welcome.
Additionally, Brymer reminds the public to donate that unwanted holiday turkey or ham gift to the soup kitchen so that they can help feed those in need during the upcoming holiday season.
Christian Ministries of Lincoln County is located at 208 S. Academy St. in Lincolnton.
