Some Washtenaw County residents might go hungry this Thanksgiving season if it weren't for the efforts of some businesses, organizations and individuals. For some, the community meals also provide a chance to give thanks with friends and neighbors.

AnnArbor.com is looking to highlight those who are providing food for the hungry this holiday. If you or your group are holding a free Thanksgiving meal this year, let us know.

We'll be compiling a list of the free Thanksgiving meals offered for those in need throughout Washtenaw County and featuring it on AnnArbor.com.

Send the details of your event — including time, date, place, menu, any transportation provided, etc. — to juliebaker@annarbor.com.
