Hundreds of people packed Lincoln Elementary in Waterloo for its annual Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday.
Staff members at the school prepare the meal because they say they want to give back.
It's the fourth year for the meal. Each year more than 600 people dine on turkey and all the trimmings.
Lincoln Elementary, along with their partners of education, serve the food.
Those involved say it's also a learning opportunity for students.
"It's very important for us to teach our kids to give back to our community and really be a part. Teaching them volunteering. We have lots of people here just to volunteer from out partners in ed to all of the staff that's here, it's totally volunteers today," said Stephanie Mohorn, principal.
Some of the food was donated. Lincoln Elementary staff members raised money to pay for the rest of it.
