Jacob celebrates Thanksgiving with friends and neighbors

For a second year, Jacob Restaurant opened its doors to friends and neighbors for a free Thanksgiving meal. Both locations extended invitations to regular customers and those who could use a hot meal on Thanksgiving Day from 11 am to 1 pm. Guests filled up trays with as much food as they could hold and sat down to dine in or carry out trays piled with mac and cheese, collard greens, ham, sweet potatoes, and other southern favorites.
