AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Volunteers from the Master’s Table Soup Kitchen cooked 30 turkeys over the past few days preparing for a Thanksgiving feast to feed people looking for a warm cooked meal.

From the gobble to the goose – the soup kitchen had plenty of food.

“We have turkey, mac and cheese, the cheesy cornbread casserole that chef Linda made. We also have a lot of pies so we will be able to bless a lot of families today,” said Abby Muehlfeld, vice president of marketing at Golden Harvest Food Bank.

Staff members from Golden Harvest and volunteers at the soup kitchen filled plates of food to serve to anyone looking for a hot meal on Thanksgiving. They expected more than 200 people.

“This time of year is really difficult for many families trying to make ends meet trying to make sure that there is food on their table for their families with Christmas coming up saving up to buy presents,” Muehlfeld said.

Its labor of love from the volunteers and workers – including a gentle giant whose passion for food and cooking led him to the soup kitchen.

“Cooking was something I always wanted to do,” said Nairobai Grant, chef at Golden Harvest Food Bank. “I retired from the military and this is something I would have been doing anyway. It’s a win-win. I actually use my degree and I actually give back to the community.”

The soup kitchen is open 365 days a year for anyone and everyone to grab a meal.
