Nov. 24 – It was all about warm hearts and full stomachs at the St. Stevens United Methodist Church in Marble Hill, the Bronx, this Thursday. More than 100 people gathered for the eighth annual Thanksgiving Day dinner, a tradition of feeding the neighborhood a free meal. The church – located across from the Marble Hill Houses – is a sanctuary for many from the public housing development. A place of community, faith and fun.
Church volunteers prepared the meal which included turkey, collard greens, mashed yams, cornbread and green beans. A spread of desserts followed the meal.
The church delivered over 50 meals to home-bound people in the neighborhood who were unable to attend in person.
