Cougar news staff

Organizers are preparing for the 13th annual Thanksgiving Houston Superfeast, which will serve Thanksgiving dinner to the homeless and less fortunate on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 27.

The feast will be held at Sam Houston Park downtown, between McKinney and Allen Parkway, and planners expect to serve 20,000 people.

The dinner will be served between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., and "the time will be extended if needed. No one has ever been turned away at the Superfeast," said Tammy Bohon, chairwoman and event organizer.

All surplus food will be donated to Neighborhood Centers Inc.

The event is looking for volunteers to set up, cook, serve, wait on tables, distribute clothing and clean up between 5 a.m. and 5 p.m. Thanksgiving Day.

The set-up and cooking teams are expected to be on site at 5 a.m.; servers are needed from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.; and the clean-up and loading crews will be needed from 3 to 5 p.m.

Contributions to the Superfeast can be sent to the Thanksgiving Houston Superfeast, 2123 FM 1960 West #236, Houston 77090.

If you are interested in volunteering, call the USA Waste Services information hotline at (281) 651-0911.
