CINCINNATI — Thousands of Tri-Staters will receive free meals and healthcare services at the 14th annual Fall Feast on Thanksgiving Day.

More than 1,000 volunteers will serve up about 5,000 Thanksgiving meals from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. Thursday at the Duke Energy Convention Center.

Organizer Kimberly Knakes said Fall Feast is more than just a free meal; the event provides free health screenings, dental services and haircuts. Everyone will receive a free coat.

Fall Feast is also about fellowship, Knakes said.

“A lot of people have no place to go, and we just wanted to make sure people in the community have someplace to be,” Knakes said.

Volunteers will deliver 2,000 of the 5,000 meals to 30 different locations across the Tri-State.

It took more than 1,200 pounds of turkey, 13,000 pounds of green beans, 80 gallons of gravy and 800 pies to prepare the meals.
