INDIANAPOLIS — 'Twas the night before Thanksgiving, and all through Indianapolis volunteers gathered to help prepare Thanksgiving dinner.

The Mozel Sanders Foundation expects to feed 11,000 people on Thursday with the help of more than 700 volunteers. This is the 51st year for the event.

This year, chicken will be the main entree instead of turkey. The cost of turkey and worry about possible shortages due to bird flu and supply chain issues led to the decision.

There will also be dressing, green beans, gravy, dinner rolls and cookies served.

Meals can be picked up at the satellite locations on a first come, first served basis. The meals are for pick up and not for eating at the location.
