A contingent of community-minded local organizations — including Detroit Shipping Company and the Detroit Restaurant & Lodging Association — will be hosting “Full Plates, Full Hearts” culinary events to help provide Thanksgiving meals to neighbors in need.

An annual event that is fueled by local chefs who create delicious meals, “Full Plates, Full Hearts” will be held Monday, Nov. 20, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Detroit Shipping Company, located at 474 Peterboro St. in Detroit.

Lansing Shuffle (325 Riverfront Drive in Lansing) will host a similar community-enhancing event.

The events will provide delicious Thanksgiving-themed meals to some of Detroit’s and Lansing’s most at-risk populations through a dine-in opportunity — and through special deliveries to select nonprofits.

Thanksgiving meals at the pre-mentioned sites and times are available one per person on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last.

The meals will be prepared by the following restaurants: 320 Coffee and Creamery, Bangkok 96 Street Food, Browndog, COOP Caribbean Fusion, Halal Street, Momo Cha, Irie Smoke Shack, Kin Thai, Motor Burger, Osteria Vegana and Yeti Kitchen.
