Volunteers prepare meals for the Our Daily Bread program over the summer which was drive-thru at First United Methodist Church in Graham. The same type of service will be held for the FUMC Community Thanksgiving Friendship Meal on Tuesday.

First United Methodist Church this year have taken the reins for the annual Thanksgiving meal with a drive-thru service available Tuesday at the church. The meal will be taking the place of the Friendship Meal on Nov. 24 at 6 p.m. rather than being held on Thanksgiving.
The Community Thanksgiving Friendship Meal will be served in a curbside pickup manner in the same manner the church has been performing past Friendship Meals and how it performed the Our Daily Bread program over the summer.
“This traditional Thanksgiving meal will be served hot and may be eaten when picked up, or it can be refrigerated and saved for Thanksgiving Day. Meals will be packaged in containers that can be heated in the microwave,” FUMC wrote on their Facebook page. “Bethel Baptist usually serves around 300 meals so we hope to be able to reach many of the people who usually dine with them.”
