Those traditions held true Sunday at the Bakersfield Homeless Center's annual Thanksgiving feast, a holiday gathering of nearly two decades.

Both current residents and those who now have housing and take part in the center's aftercare services dined on turkey, ham, potatoes, vegetables, pies and more.

“It is important to help families who live with us and also those we have placed into homes so they can gather together as a family this holiday season,” said center CEO Louis Gill.
