TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Wednesday, the Salvation Army teamed up with a number of volunteers to serve an early Thanksgiving dinner to the community.

The dinner included the traditional foods of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and of course dessert.  

Those that chose to partake in the meal were seated at a round table and were served by the volunteers.  

The round tables help guests feel like they're sitting at home surrounded by family, which is exactly what the Salvation Army wants.

Lt. Amber Meo, the director of the Salvation Army of Tallahassee said, "This is the time of year where everyone wants to be with their family. They're thinking of fun times, good times from the past. We know that there's a lot of people in our community who don't have that family they can spend the holidays with. We're hoping that around these tables, they'll find family here."

Wednesday's goal was to serve about 500 community members with this feast.
