Hundreds of volunteers are getting Thanksgiving meals ready as part of the annual Love for Thanksgiving. 

Volunteers prepared and seasoned the turkeys, while other volunteers prepared side dishes like yams.

The food for Love for Thanksgiving will be distributed early on Thanksgiving morning.  

Across town, some children received their Thanksgiving meal today at a local restaurant. 

The Bakersfield Homeless Center organized the field trip together with Chat N Chew restaurant who offered to feed the children.
The children were fed a traditional holiday meal that featured turkey, mashed potatoes and green beans.
