While we each are so grateful for so many things during this season, let us not forget that the holidays are often met with hardships by some families. Not everyone can provide a holiday meal for their family. Keeping this in mind, several organizations help provide Thanksgiving meals to low-income and struggling families. Tennessee 2-1-1 is a helpful resource for finding local non-profits in your area that will assist with a hearty Thanksgiving meal. Also, many local churches provide baskets and meals during the holidays with no requirements. Everyone deserves to enjoy good food with loved ones during the holidays.
