SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

With Thanksgiving getting closer and closer, Savannah Feed the Hungry is gearing up to feed those in need.

Monday, preparations began at Woodville Tompkins School, getting ready to feed approximately 5,000 families. For the past couple years, the school has been teaming up with Savannah Feed the Hungry, allowing their culinary students to learn more about the business.

Carl Dyson Bosier, a Culinary Arts instructor at the school, said, "We not only try to prepare them to be food service workers, but food service managers as well. Meals like this help them learn food preparation and planning for large scale events. It also gets them to meet a lot of people in the community."

The school is still receiving and accepting donations for the Thanksgiving meals. They received a donation of 300 turkeys on Monday.
