Grounds for Life Ministry hosts annual Thanksgiving Dinner


The Grounds for Life Breakfast Program has served hot breakfast to Rockford's homeless every single day for over 20 years, but it offered a traditional Thanksgiving meal on Thursday as well.

The doors at Morning Star Church on Rockford's Third Avenue opened at 3:00 p.m. and dinner was served at 4:00. The dinner has served over 200 people in the past and the ministry is funded only through private donations and volunteers.

Many of the volunteers are employees of SwedishAmerican Health System.
