Businesses and motorcycle clubs give free holiday meal
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Valley motorcycle riders teamed up to provide a free Thanksgiving meal to the community on Sunday.
Members of several different motorcycle clubs served warm meals to hungry people in Downtown Fresno. The all-volunteer effort was organized by the motorcycle riders and local businesses -- offering food to anyone who needed it.
"We are feeding the community, not just the homeless, but senior citizens and low income families. What we wanted to do is just have a day where they can come out, get food, turkey, ham, vegetables -- a thanksgiving dinner," said Amanda Joines with True Passion Social Club.
Organizers of Sunday's event planned on feeding up to 300 people. They are hoping to make it an annual event.
