Preparations underway for free Thanksgiving meal tomorrow


Preparations are underway for a special Thanksgiving day dinner in Joplin.  Caldone's Restaurant will be offering free turkey meals.

Chefs are cooking enough food for about 600 people.  The meals will be for anyone in need.

The restaurant's executive chef says he got the idea to offer free meals from the church he attends.

"It doesn't matter whether you're somebody that has had a job for 20 years, or you just lost it, or you don't have a need.  If you're somebody that doesn't have a place to live, most definitely.  Anyone out there that has a need for a meal, that's why we're doing this," says executive chef Dwight Loftus.

The free meals will be available from 11:30 AM to 12:30 in the afternoon Thursday.
