DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - Weeks of preparation paid off for Salvation Army volunteers who provided more than 1800 people with a Thanksgiving meal this holiday season.

One-hundred-twenty volunteers joined the kitchen staff to cook the tasty turkey feast. From 240 cooked birds, mashed potatoes and gravy, to multiple veggies sides and dessert, anyone in need of a free meal was welcome to eat at the shelter.

“It is special because, you know, because some of the people probably, they don’t have nothing to eat and they come and enjoy here and some of the people come and have fun,” said Salvation Army chef Modesto Robleda with a smile.

The Salvation Army accepted food donations from the community, the North Texas Food Bank and Alberton’s in the week leading up to Thanksgiving.

The shelter will host a similar meal at Christmas.
