ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Food preparation and cooking will begin Sunday morning for Equinox’s 47th annual Thanksgiving Day Community Dinner.

Early Thanksgiving morning, Thursday, Nov. 24, thousands of volunteer drivers will line up at the Empire State Plaza to pick up meals, and deliver them to households within a 40 mile radius of Albany.

A sit-down dinner will take place Thursday afternoon at the First Presbyterian Church.
