CINCINNATI -- Ashley Hamilton was in good company Thanksgiving night: She was in one of the two dozen cars that stopped by Washington Park in Over-the-Rhine offering food to the less fortunate.

It's not part of any special plan; they just show up unprompted.

Hamilton said no one should go hungry on a holiday.

"We just go around and we look for people, and we make meals for them and bring them stuff," she said.

Kevin Richard, a recipient of the good-will gesture, said strangers' kindness is hard to put in words.

"I know people need a lot of food," Richards said. "There's a lot of people that are homeless here, and they're not having no dinner party today with their loved ones and stuff, so we thank God for them."

A park employee said much of the food was taken to other parts of the city, too, to help feed as many people as possible.
