The Salvation Army workers expect to feed about 1,000 homeless people at 6 p.m. Thursday, and they have prepared about 200 meals to take to area shut-ins.

"We'll feed anybody who shows up Thanksgiving Day," said David Luke, Salvation Army cook.The massive feeding projects will be made easier this year by a gift of 60 large, Utah-grown turkeys from Salt Lake-based Norbest Inc., the fourth-largest turkey processor in the country. The company delivered 1,500 pounds of turkey to the kitchen Monday. The gift commemorates Norbest's 60th anniversary.

The meal will be served at the Army's community dining room, 429 W. 300 South.
