It's turkey time for St. Vincent de Paul

WEST END, OH (FOX19) - CINCINNATI (FOX19) - St. Vincent de Paul will begin handing out 1,000 Thanksgiving meals Tuesday morning at the Society's Outreach Center in the West End.

Food distribution begins at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, and many families were in line well before the doors open.

The Thanksgiving meals include turkeys and all of the fixings for families in need.

St. Vincent de Paul says with the number of American's living in poverty at an all time high of 49.1 million, many local families are not sure where their next meal will come from.

Thanks to donations, more than 2,500 local families in need will be able to provide their family with a Thanksgiving meal.

Donations are still being accepted. Visit for more information.
