BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - A Bryan woman held her annual Thanksgiving meal for anyone needing a bite.

Gloria Kennard’s big feast was different this year due to COVID 19. It was drive-thru and walk-up to-go service only at Pleasant Grove Missionary Baptist Church.

Kennard and her many friends have been preparing the Thanksgiving fellowship meal for 32 years now.

“Oh the drive-thru was lovely. Everything was in order. Everybody waited. Everybody was enjoyable. Everybody enjoyed the meal so everything went real great,” said Kennard.

“Well when I found out about it from someone at work you know I just thought it would be a great way to give back to the community and kind of you know show my thankfulness for the fact that I haven’t suffered like some people are suffering now,” said O.J. Sills, a volunteer from College Station.

The group tells us they served nearly 800 meals.

We have our previous story on the setup here.

Kennard was also recently honored with KBTX Be Remarkable Award for her volunteer efforts.

We also have our report on her meal last year here.
