"Heather and Dave Nivus of The Good Food Store in Bethel prepare Thanksgiving dinner plates for themselves and daughters Jocelyn, 3, and Corinne, 5, at the annual Turkey Tuesday dinner in Greenwood. The couple have been hosting the community dinner for 20 years as a benefit for the Bethel District Exchange, a local food pantry for familes in need. With help from volunteers, the Nivuses prepare and donate 12 turkeys, 100 pounds of potatoes, 44 loaves of stuffing bread, 10 gallons of gravy and two gallons of cranberry sauce. Each year a truckload of canned food and up to $1,000 in donations is raised by the hundreds of diners, all of whom also bring a side dish or dessert to share"
