ELKHART — Though it wasn’t ideal, organizers said, an annual event this year passed out hundreds of meals to families at the Matterhorn on Thanksgiving.

For the second year, the restaurant, partnering with Elkhart Salvation Army and Elkhart Rotary Club, canceled the dine-in experience for their annual Thanksgiving dinner and switched to a drive-thru model, continuing their mission to provide meals to residents in need.

Hmmm.... why are things soooo bad? Unemployment rate 1.8%? 1000s of jobs are still open. Jobs paying much more than ever! Look at the photo of a person picking up free food in a rather expensive SUV! Maybe a less expensive auto... Maybe forgo those tatts cigs, beers? If you think things are bad now, wait until winter really arrives!! Home heating is projected to be much higher. Why? ask Joe Biden. Gasoline is double last year. Why? Ask Joe Biden! Inflation is just starting! Why? Ask Joe Biden. Now the Fed wants to raise the prime. It will slow the economy! Who's fault? Don't as Joe Biden! He has no clue!! The new Hardees on Cassopolis is closed as much as open. Just can't get workers! Back in the 60s when my dad lost his job of 23 years, mom worked at the high school in the cafeteria. I took her to work. . She got a ride home! I worked got paid $2.50 an hour. I worked about 25 hours a week until senior year. Then from 2pm to 10 pm! Very few kids work today. It's a family thing. Survival! Go to work students!


Great post Fire. People today need cell phones and $200.00 sneakers and look to welfare to feed their families. Tats are also a must have. But work a minimum wage job, not going to happen. Blame the rich, Joe says it’s their fault.
