The Fillmore Silver Spring served up a tall order for Thanksgiving—2,000 pounds of classic Thanksgiving fare for people in need, according to ABC7.
The concert venue announced that it would host a special holiday lunch and asked for donations of food and clothes, which they bundled and sent home with the guests.
Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett volunteered, ABC7 reported.
“This is the first event and I predict it will only get bigger and better as we move,” said Leggett.
Chefs worked for two days to cook dozens of turkeys and bake 60 pies, ABC7 reported. Any leftover turkey, stuffing and pie was donated to Silver Spring-based nonprofit Shepherd's Table.
"The Fillmore Silver Spring is all about bringing music to the people of this area," Stephanie Steele, general manager of The Fillmore, told WAMU. "And Thanksgiving represented a great opportunity for us to bring not only music but friendship and assistance to those who are in need."
