Camden, N.J. -- In November, the Camden Neighborhood Center transformed its basketball court into a Community Flash Grocery Store.

The rec center received donations from organizations and churches from across the state all month long.

It was open to about 600 pre-registered families in need of a good Thanksgiving meal.

About three and a half tons of turkeys were given out.

The Neighborhood Center's mission is not just to feed those who need access to good food, but to feed them nutritiously and with high quality healthy meals.
