A Thanksgiving meal for the needy in Frederick County -- Gazette.Net


For several years, the Frederick Community Action Agency has distributed free turkeys and other traditional meal items to needy families just before the Thanksgiving holiday.

This year’s distribution was held on Tuesday at Harry Grove Stadium in Frederick, where volunteers distributed turkeys and side dishes to the first 1,000 needy families that arrived.

The families had to provide identification to show proof of residency in Frederick County and ideally should have used the agency’s food bank within the past year.
