Lincoln Elementary gives back while feeding hundreds

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) - More than 500 people dined on turkey and all the trimmings at Lincoln Elementary in Waterloo for their annual Thanksgiving dinner. 

Lincoln Elementary, along with their partners in education, and Waterloo Blackhawks players served the food.

This is the fifth year the school has hosted the meal.

Meal organizers say this is a great learning opportunity for students.

"Well the students need to know that it's always a great thing to pay it forward, to give back to the community. The community supports them in their education, our partners in education support them and that way of giving back hopefully it's something that will be instilled in them for the rest of their lives," said Phaedra Mobley, second grade teacher.

People who came to dine were also able to take home canned food for later on in the week.
