WAITE PARK, Minn. (AP) - For 30 years, a Boy Scout troop in central Minnesota has been serving Christmas dinner for impoverished families and individuals who find themselves alone during the holiday.

The St. Cloud Times ( ) reports Waite Park Boy Scout Troop 20 served its 30th Christmas dinner Friday in the basement of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church. Past and current members of the troop don their uniforms and Santa hats and served dinner to members of the community.

Volunteers prepped 18 turkeys and baked 75 pies for the 700 to 800 meals the group planned on platting between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Meals were also delivered to those who are home bound. Volunteer delivery driver Ed Bauer says “it’s rewarding just to see the expression on people’s faces” when they get a meal.
