Sherry O'Connell of the Salvation Army said the organization was prepared to serve at least 200 meals and had seen a steady stream of people grateful for the dinner. O'Connell said she wanted to thank the entire community for food and financial donations. "We live in an extremely generous community," she said. "I'm grateful for that." Each meal was prepared separately and delivered in a bag to people socially distanced in line. There was outdoor seating also available.
