The annual Hosea Feed the Hungry dinner celebrates its 46th year of feeding the community in Atlanta on Thanksgiving Day. The event serves thousands of meals every year and keeps growing with its offering of services and food. The event was started by noted civil rights leader Hosea Williams, who was a top aide for Dr. Martin L. King Jr. With the death of Williams in 2000, the annual event is now led by his daughter, Elisabeth Omilami.

This year’s dinner will take place at the Georgia World Congress Center on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 26, 2015,  from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The meal will be provided under the guidance of Master Chef Daryl Shular, who in 2014 was one of only two people to receive this certification in the country. Besides getting a delicious Thanksgiving dinner, people attending the event will have an opportunity to receive clothing, haircuts and community services.
