400 people are expected to attend the event.

Following the dinner, free haircuts will be offered and nurses will be on duty to assist with family practice and OBGYN services.

Pastor Dale Draper says it is important to give back and help the less fortunate because he once was.

“Because I used to be homeless, and I know what it feels like to be without a meal but if I could serve them a good, hot Thanksgiving meal – I know how I've did,” said Draper.

This year a live band will play music during the dinner.

It will take place at the Senior Center at Jenks Rest in Lafayette from 5 to 8 p.m.
