Cooking a traditional Thanksgiving meal for hundreds of homeless men and women doesn’t happen overnight.
In Memphis Union Mission’s case, it takes weeks of preparations and a little help from Corky’s Barbecue, who is lending a hand again this year by smoking all 100 turkeys that the Mission will be serving.
“What Corky’s does for us is a real blessing,” said Scott Bjork, president and CEO. “By smoking those turkeys for us, it makes preparations for our Thanksgiving banquet so much easier.”
But for the Mission, it isn’t just about efficiency.
