ATLANTA (AP) - Leaders of an Atlanta organization say preparations are underway to feed the needy this Thanksgiving.

Hosea Feed The Hungry and Homeless officials say the annual Great Turkey Drop Off takes place Thursday morning at the DeKalb County Jail, which has one of the largest commercial kitchens in the metro Atlanta area.

The group’s leaders say Publix and Kroger supermarkets are expecting to deliver more than 1,000 turkeys to help the group host its Thanksgiving Day event at the Georgia World Congress Center.

Chief Executive Officer of Hosea Feed The Hungry and Homeless Elizabeth Omilami says this year’s event will also feature programs to help clients move toward personal independence. The group is still accepting donations for its Thanksgiving dinner.
