This Thanksgiving will be the first meal that Jennifer Abercrombie can’t afford to cook for her family.

Abercrombie’s food stamps, which the Indianapolis resident uses to feed the seven members of her family, were cut this month. If she hadn’t been able to attend the holiday food giveaway at Saints Francis and Clare Catholic Church, the family would not have a Thanksgiving meal at all, she said.

This year, 400 Johnson County families registered for the event at the Center Grove area church Tuesday, where donated food, including turkeys, boxed stuffing and cranberry sauce, are passed out for free to help those in need.
