The W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds became 'turkey central' on Saturday as hundreds of cars lined up to receive a free turkey dinner.  Feeding South Dakota gave away 750 turkey dinners to families in need.

KSFY reports that 50 volunteers put on an extra layer to brave the cold temps to help spread some holiday spirit.

"It’s blowing my mind how long the line is. I got here at 5:30 this morning and there were already cars lined all the way up onto Madison," Feeding South Dakota Development Director, Christina Oey said.

It wasn't just turkeys, Feeding South Dakota also gave away pies and everyone's Thanksgiving favorite sides.

"It's always stressful at the holidays for anybody and some are less fortunate than others," Volunteer, Cindy Robshaw said.

One meal was given to each family with a maximum of two meals given to each car.
