LOS ANGELES (CBS)— With the crippled economy and rising unemployment rate, the turkey giveaway comes at a time when the need is at an all-time high across Southern California.
For the fourth year in a row, the Los Angeles Convention Center and ARAMARK, the convention center’s exclusive food service and catering partner, are handing out 2,000 free turkeys to local families.
Butterball has donated over 1,000 tasty turkeys. This event has quickly become the city’s largest Thanksgiving turkey distribution.
In order to receive a turkey, recipients must present a voucher to snag their free bird.
