Hundreds of people in Abilene woke up Thanksgiving morning without a place to go for a meal.

A restaurant opened their doors to them.

Lucy's Big Burgers has offered a free Thanksgiving meal for the past 5 years.

It started as a way to help the homeless.

Now, they serve anyone who walks through their doors.

They said people without family here, first responders, and regular customers need a meal.

"It doesn't matter who they are because there's so many people that are traveling or that just doesn't have any family or a place to go," owner Amy Graven said.

Last year they fed over 600 people.
