For the third year in a row, Foodland in Lakefield was giving out free turkeys on Wednesday to those in need.

“We’re putting food on the table for them or helping them directly. There’s no agency involved, I help a lot of charities, a lot of not for profits, but this way I give it directly to someone who needs it,” said Ross Bletsoe, Foodland co-owner and store manager.

The giveaway went from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
