Thanksgiving in the street: Hundreds of Baltimore neighbors gathered to share food & fellowship
On a warm fall day, Nov. 18, across the street from the Healthcare for the Homeless office, 1,400 meals were served to homeless and formerly homeless Baltimore residents at the 4th Annual Thanksgiving Lunch, hosted by a grassroots coalition of organizations. Clothing, canned goods and shoes were given away and live music was performed. The event started at 2 pm under a bridge where a tent community was recently cleared away. It stretched into the evening and ended with a community dance party.
