Elisabeth Omilami, the organization's executive director, estimated her organization served 20 percent more people on Thursday than it did last year.

She estimated that volunteers who took part in the event served more than 20,000 meals.

Besides the food, the organization provided hot showers, clothing, barber and beautician service, medical screenings, employment and housing referrals and children's services.

The Thanksgiving feast consisted of traditional fare that included turkeys, greens beans, corn and yams and stuffing as well as egg rolls, sushi rolls and Korean barbecue.
