About 70 volunteers, many of them young people, served more than 800 meals to participants in this year's Community Thanksgiving Dinner.

The free meal of traditional offerings that included turkey, dressing and pumpkin pie was a collaborative effort by Food and Shelter Inc., United Way of Norman, Salvation Army, Community Action and the city of Norman.

April Doshier, with Food and Shelter Inc., said about 600 people dined at the Norman High School Commons. An additional 225 meals were delivered to shut-ins.

“It's a really nice tradition. No one should have to eat alone or do without a Thanksgiving meal,” Doshier said.
