Thanksgiving is just around the corner, but the holiday season can be tough for many, especially with rising prices in the grocery store making holiday dinners pricier than usual. From churches to foodbanks, the Recorder compiled a list of a few places around Indianapolis that will offer free turkeys or full meals for Thanksgiving.
Of course, there are plenty of places giving away free food this holiday season; this list is just a few of them.
