One of our favorite days of the year is the Tuesday before Thanksgiving--it’s the day of the annual Thanksgiving Dish! Anchors and reporters from 11Alive, CBS Atlanta, Fox 5 and WSB-TV, as well as former Braves pitcher John Smoltz, come together for a morning to help prepare over 2,000 meals for people in need. Today we celebrate our 15th year, and it has become a beloved tradition for us, and for our returning participants.
Yesterday was the 14th Annual Great Thanksgiving Dish, a special holiday tradition that brings together media from local TV stations to prepare Thanksgiving meals. This year, Dish provided 2,700 Thanksgiving meals for organizations that are partner agencies of Atlanta’s Table, a project of the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
Thanksgiving Dish is a time for us to prepare special holiday meals for those in need with the support of the Renaissance Waverly Hotel and other Renaissance and Marriott hotels.
