Holidays tend to be more stressful than cheerful when finances are an issue. The average cost of a Thanksgiving meal in 2011 was over $20 per person. If you have a big family, that cost adds up big time. Unfortunately money doesn’t grow on trees, right? Luckily there are some local establishments offering FREE Thanksgiving meals to families in Troy.

The Missing Link AME Zion Church in Troy continues their efforts to feed the city’s hungry citizens for an 11th consecutive year. Free, hot meals will be served from 12pm to 3pm on Thanksgiving day at:

Fallon Rainbow Center – 847 River St., Troy

North Station – 55 State St., Troy

The Missing Link AME Zion Church – 3370 6th Ave, Troy

Meals will be offered for take-home and delivery as well. To donate, volunteer or inquire about the meals – contact the Missing Link AME Zion Church at 518-421-5222.
