Thousands of people sat down to enjoy a holiday meal with their fellow Houstonians at H-E-B's fifth annual Feast of Sharing Sunday. Volunteers served 10,000 traditional meals at the George R. Brown Convention Center. There was also live musical entertainment and a play area with Santa for the kids.

Social service organizations were on hand for those who need help with more meals or a warm place to stay this winter.

"We do have some agencies here," said Lacey Dalcour-Salas with H-E-B public affairs. "We have 211 with the United Way and certainly if anyone does need assistance, that agency can help direct them to the right place."

H-E-B cooks also prepared 1,000 additional meals to be boxed up and delivered to seniors who can't leave their homes.
