    Everyone arrives at 10am Sharp Thanksgiving morning.
    Everyone brings a dish, ALREADY COOKED/HEATED. It can be as little as a
    99 cent tray of dinner rolls from the grocery store, or it can be three large bowls of your grandma's famous "cranberry walnut stuffing". What ever you are comfortable with. The location is CHURCH OF THE INTERCESSION in Harlem. The address is
    550 West 155th St, at Broadway.

    At 10:00 we begin a large "conveyer belt" of food, and with everyone's help, we put complete meals together. We build takeout boxes, together with care packages of tooth brushes, soap, etc.
