600 turkeys

First United Church in Oak Park and the Oak Park community food pantry gave away 600 frozen turkeys to families in need this evening. The crowd there was large and it reminded me just how many people out there are hurting these days. One man I spoke with was gracious and said he had been waiting in line for about two hours. Add in time for his commute from home or work and that’s a serious commitment for one free turkey, but having a hot meal for your family gains importance all the more around the holidays.

  1. Great photo. The narrow depth-of-field really makes the subject pop. Nicely composed, too.
