Preparations underway for huge community Christmas Meal from the Salvation Army
Milwaukee (CBS 58)-A flurry of activity for arguably the biggest Christmas feast!
On Tuesday morning, donors arrived at the Wisconsin Center to drop off 2,000 pounds of ham, 2,4000 pounds of turkey and all the fixings for a spectacular Christmas meal.
The family feast is the Salvation Army's largest dinner event served on Christmas day for free from 11:00 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.
Organizers say it's about a lot more than food.
Project Coordinator Don Rosette says its about making sure everyone feels the good feelings of Christmas whether they're alone, with a large family, on tough times financially, or looking just to get out of the doldrums.
"We have choirs and caroling," Rosette tells CBS 58 News. "Presents for the children. Everyone should come!"
Last year, some 10,000 people attended the feast.
They expect even more this year.
