MOUNDSVILLE, W.Va. (WTRF) – All across the Ohio Valley, families gathered Thursday to enjoy time old traditions.
But for some, new traditions were made as they walked into the doors at Bob’s Lunch in Moundsville for a hot, delicious and completely free Thanksgiving dinner.
This gives the people a place to come and maybe they’re by themselves. Maybe they don’t have anyone to cook for. They’re alone. It gives them a place to come get a hot meal, and be happy, and be around friends and family.Gary Workman, owner of Bob’s Lunch
The turkey came with all of the fixings to fill everyone’s stomach.
We have mashed potatoes, ham, turkey, yams, noodles, green beans, rolls dessert.Gary Workman, owner of Bob’s Lunch
Moundsville resident, Nicollette Flores, came out to the free lunch because her mom is a volunteer.
She also said events like these keep the community close-knit and the city’s friendliness alive.
Cause there’s a lot of people that don’t have anywhere to go. They have nobody. So, it’s nice that they can do something to where you can have a conversation with somebody finally.Nicollette Flores, Moundsville resident
Bob’s Lunch has held this free community lunch annually for the past seven years.
Workman projects more than 300 people walked through those doors Thursday.
