    Thousands of people on Thursday shared a Thanksgiving meal in San Francisco thanks to a long-standing tradition designed to help those in need.

    Each year, GLIDE dishes out a full holiday meal with all the traditional fixings at Glide Memorial Church in the city by the bay. Folks helping out this time around were slated to hand out more than 2,000 meals.

    Breakfast was served at the church, which is located at 330 Ellis St., from 7:30 until 9 a.m. while the Thanksgiving meal took place between 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.

    The goal is to help feed those in need and give them a place to celebrate the holiday during a time in which they may be experiencing trying situations.

    Hundreds of volunteers on Wednesday were making last-minute preparations for the annual feast. 

    Earlier in the day Mayor Ed Lee, police Chief Bill Scott and fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White joined volunteers in serving 600 lunches as part of the organization's free daily meals program.
