MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Gov. Robert Bentley will spend part of Thanksgiving serving meals to the homeless.

The governor’s press office says Bentley will join volunteers on Thursday to serve a Thanksgiving meal at Friendship Mission in Montgomery.

The faith-based organization operates shelters for homeless men and women and also runs a daily soup kitchen.

Executive Shelter Director Tammy Middleton says she expects the mission to feed between 125 and 150 people on Thanksgiving day.

The governor on Friday has invited shelter residents, including a group of homeless veterans, to have lunch at the governor’s residence in east Montgomery.

The lunch will be held at the Wynfield Estate, a state-owned home that is used for government functions.
