Dozens of Bulloch County families will have plenty to be thankful for this holiday when partaking in free Thanksgiving meals provided by the Statesboro Food Bank. A steady stream of residents flowed to and from the bank’s location at the old Sallie Zetterower Elementary School Tuesday, where volunteers delivered 100 Thanksgiving meals to people who could use a leg up during the season of giving. Visitors to the food bank, who registered earlier in the month to receive dinners through a statewide nutritional program, walked away with 12- to 14-lbs. turkeys and a bounty that could satisfy even the most voracious of appetites.
