CEDAR RAPIDS — The Salvation Army hosts its annual community Thanksgiving meal from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday at its Cedar Rapids facility, 1000 C Ave. NW.

The meal is sponsored by Veridian Credit Union. It is open to anyone in need and no registration is required.

“This is the season to be grateful,” said Major Alan Hellstrom. “To see everyone come together, knowing that no matter what they have going on in their lives, at this moment they have something to be grateful for, that’s what makes this meal such a blessing.”
