MORRIS PARK - Dozens of volunteers spent Saturday morning making sure fellow Bronx residents will be able to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal.

More than 200 people lined up at the St. Clare of Assissi Church to receive grocery bags filled with Thanksgiving food that will feed a family of eight.

The volunteers spent hours prepping and packing all of the bags.

The annual event, in its 30th year, is organized by the Kiwanis Club. All of the food is donated by local businesses, community groups and individual donors.
