It was a day for food and lots of it on Thursday as Lee's Famous Recipe Chicken served Thanksgiving Day meals.

John Fischer, co-owner of the restaurant, and his daughters Elizabeth, 10,  and Abigail, 7, were there to help with the Salvation Army meal.

Pam Reed, general manager of Lee's, helped prepare boxed meals for delivery by Meals on Wheels drivers.

Others volunteered to help serve the meal at the restaurant.

After receiving their dinners, the patrons picked up drinks from The Columbia Falcons semi-pro football team and ate in the dining room of the restaurant.
