On Thursday, this unusual twice-weekly restaurant in the open meeting space at 60 Union St., which also hosts the occasional church supper at other times, will hold a family-style Thanksgiving dinner at 1 p.m. There is a suggested donation of $15, but the usual pay-as-you-can policy applies. No matter their circumstances, patrons have been flocking to the place. On this day, they include a businessman who owns the furniture store around the corner, a minister at one of several local churches, community volunteers, a family that has come in off the street, and several people who are a bit down on their luck.
Dale Horton, a volunteer from Lakeville, helps out in the kitchen.
