VIDEO: Tacoma's annual Thanksgiving meal serves 150 hungry people

Thanksgiving day the Nora Lee Walker Foundation served a classic turkey dinner with all the trimmings to those in need.

“Oh my God, the dressing. It tastes like something I'd make. It's a very good meal,” said Deborah Spivey.

Thursday was Spivey's first time spending the holiday at Tacoma's "Set the Table" feed, which was held at the Prince Hall Masonic Temple.

Volunteers filled plates with turkey, green beans, stuffing, mac and cheese, and more.

Their goal is to feed 150 people this holiday.

"It is so precious for people to think of giving,” said Spivey.

Their mission is simple: help the hungry.

"My mom fed everyone, she was a matriarch here in the Tacoma-Hilltop area and so me being the baby of 10, we had to feed everybody and everybody came in and the door was always open, so what we did in her passing was to decide to feed whoever wanted a meal. We didn't care who it was,” said Brenda Wraggs.

Wraggs started the annual event in honor of her late mother, Nora Lee Walker.

On top of providing meals, they're also handing out socks and coats to those in need.

"They love it, you can tell, you can see, they're coming in and grabbing coats, they're enjoying everything,” said Wraggs.

Those who couldn't make it inside will also get fed. Volunteers boxed up meals and delivered them to those living on Tacoma’s streets.
