This year, instead of getting off and waiting in line with hundreds of people for food already prepared, Super Feast had families drive up or walk up to get a whole turkey, a ham and some canned food so they can go home and cook themselves.
The meal giveaway was set to start at 10 a.m., but about 150 cars were lined up by 8 a.m.
"If this is any indication of how many people will show up today, we need a lot more food," said a City Wide Club member earlier in the day.

The need is great this year. Now, more than ever.

About 50,000 people usually eat a Thanksgiving meal at the feast, and for the first time, the team isn't sure they'll have enough food to serve everyone.

Donations are still being accepted. Team members took any packaged uncooked turkeys and packaged hams.
"So many people have been affected in ways that we can't even imagine by the pandemic, whether they've lost their jobs, or in danger of losing housing or have even lost loved ones," said Stephanie Lewis, a City Wide Club member. "So, we're trying to make sure that everyone has not only a happy holiday but hopefully enough food to last a few days."
The team said they are thankful to the people who donated turkeys and sides.
