For the third year in a row, Jack Gilmore and Tom Kamm of Jack Allen's Kitchen join forces with Mobile Loaves & Fishes to provide a hot and savory Thanksgiving dinner for about 700 homeless folks at the First Baptist Church (901 Trinity).

With the cold, damp weather this year, the free dinner party couldn't be happening at a better time. Festive live music will be playing while volunteers from Jack Allen's Kitchen staff and clientele work side by side with volunteers from the church and ML&F to serve up turkey, dressing, ham, and all the fixings.
