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.
Last year they gave away 125 turkeys.
Bletsoe says he feels good to give back to the community and looks forward to giving even more away this year.
