NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Folks at the Journey Home in Murfreesboro don’t have to wait until the holidays to provide meals for those in need. It’s an everyday thing.

But Thursday’s menu was prepared with a little extra special touch.

Volunteers served a traditional Thanksgiving lunch completed with turkey, stuffing, green beans, mac and cheese and a sweet potato casserole.

About 200 meals were expected to be served to the city’s homeless, particularly homeless families.

“The community we serve often find themselves kind of away from maybe their biological family, or the family in which they grew up,” said Scott Foster, executive director for the Journey Home.

“Together we become community and become family for each other, for us this becomes our Thanksgiving tradition,” Foster added.

The Journey Home was founded in 2006 and moved into its current building in 2009.
