Chef James Baxter and the rest of the staff at Matterhorn Conference Center in Elkhart get ready for a Thanksgiving meal fit for as many as 2,000 people.
More than 200 volunteers from the Elkhart Salvation Army will join them Thursday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. to help dish up plates of holiday fare for the needy, the lonely and the downright hungry. Baxter and his staff prepped more than 1,300 lbs. of turkey, 450 lbs. of yams, 10 gallons of gravy and huge amounts of other traditional dishes.
