On Thursday morning the 2021 Thanksgiving Day Love Feast took place at the Rome Civic Center.
Since 1988, the community event has been feeding anyone in need a good meal on Thanksgiving Day.
As the line outside the building began to form, Reverend Terrell Shields gave a message to the volunteers at the event.
Reverend Shields also made a statement on the late Rev. Warren Jones, a big supporter of the Love Feast over the years who would often celebrate his Birthday on Thanksgiving Day at the civic center.
Food items served included all the classic thanksgiving trimmings along with cakes and cookies for dessert.
Free warm clothing like coats and jackets were also made available for those in line who needed them.
