Hundreds of Quad Citians received food for their Thanksgiving feast.

Grace Bible Fellowship gave out their annual Thanksgiving baskets at noon Tuesday.

There were long lines and pastor Don Plemons says they served about 600 people this afternoon. 

"We're helping people but we're doing it for Jesus sake for Christ sake, and I'll tell you that's what really helps because when people are out of sorts, we're not focused on them, we're focused on our purpose, and thank God it happens," said Plemons.
Pastor Plemons says the church has been giving away the baskets for about 15 years. About 50 volunteers made is possible, as well as donations from the RiverBend Foodbank and local stores.
