WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

The Thanksgiving giveaway started 27 years ago and is still going strong. The Bread of Life group hands out food for the holiday to thousands of people who would otherwise might not have a meal to cook.

Donna Piniaire is the director of the group. Pinaire said most of the recipients have few places to turn to for this kind of help. She also said the non-profit helps as many as 58,000 people a year and they continue to grow their operation.

"Sometimes it just giving them a little bit hope and encouragement that your life can be better. Yes, you can get a job and a good job and they're something good for you is going to happen," Piniaire said.
