The Salvation Army hosted Thanksgiving meals on Monday with Lansing Mayor Andy Schor.
Schor, along with over 50 volunteers, served a hot meal to almost 200 local residents.
The event took place at the Lansing Citadel Corps.
The mayor said helping out the less fortunate is important to him and the city of Lansing.
"We want to continue to grow the city, but when you continue to grow the city, everybody has got to benefit. So those who are homeless, those who have needs who can't get their next meal, or don't have a place to live, we in the city of Lansing are interested in assisting those folks so everybody benefits," he said.
A Thanksgiving meal will be provided from 4-6 p.m. Wednesday at the Salvation Army Lansing South Corps location on Jolly Road.
