ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The Capital Region’s largest and longest-running holiday tradition of providing a holiday meal to neighbors in need continues. The Annual Equinox Thanksgiving Day Community Dinner will be providing prepared meals, by local restaurants and caterers, to be delivered by volunteer drivers.

A small group of community leaders put together a Thanksgiving dinner for 200 students who were unable to go home and alone during the holiday season. The first dinner happened more than 50 years ago and has been happening ever since.

Officials say meals by volunteers will provide a contact-free delivery to recipients in 10 counties, within a 60-mile radius of Albany. Equinox will have volunteers or staff at each location to coordinate its efforts.
