The meal will be served from 10am to 1:30pmCT, or, until the food runs out, today, Thanksgiving Day, November 25, 2010, Jimmy Kemp, one of the event's organizers, said.


For the moment at least, there's an open invitation for everyone who wants to be at the dinner to be here, whether they've made reservations or not.

ColumbiaMagazine.com will be posting photos of the event here. Check this page during the day for updates.

We received over $1,000 on Monday to keep the program going," she said. She added, "We weren't going to say anything about donations today," she said, "but after so many people asked us, we have made a donations can available.
