District volunteers prep a Thanksgiving feast for the chronically-ill residents

The operation, hosted by D.C.-based organization Food & Friends, has happened for years. Typically, the group delivers frozen meals and other dishes to clients who are chronically or seriously ill, but on Thanksgiving Day, they prep a special meal that goes out to about 4,000 people, according to the organization. Volunteers and staff cook roughly 8,520 pounds of roasted turkey, 1,065 pounds of roasted potatoes and other sides, with the goal to get all the meals on doorsteps by the afternoon on Thanksgiving Day.
