The food pantry and soup kitchen hosted its annual Thanksgiving feast, serving hundreds of people with turkey dinners complete with a full ensemble of traditional side dishes free of charge.
The Singer family and its Merchants Auto Group were the official sponsors and students from Southern New Hampshire University delivered 50 turkeys as part of a class project, Sherman said.
"I can't even begin to tell you how many pounds of stuffing and turkey," New Horizons chef Carlos Morales said. "There's going to be plenty of leftovers for turkey sandwiches in the coming days. I can tell you that much."
Volunteer Shawn Caron of Manchester said signed up for 10 hours of service on Thursday.
