And besides giving thanks, what does this special day entail? A hearty, celebratory meal.
That is, if you can afford it.
Many, many Americans go without not only on Thanksgiving, but every day. But no meal on that holiday can be extra painful, and make it extra hard to be grateful.
The good news is there are lots of food banks across the nation that provide those without a warm meal on this day of thanks. And the Feeding America website has a state-by-state search for food banks near you.
If you need a little help getting dinner on the table this Thanksgiving, this resource will help. And if you have the urge to donate to or volunteer for these organizations, this list will come in handy.
Don't wait until the last minute: Find a food bank near you.
