WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Thanksgiving morning, tens of millions of Americans will be in the kitchen putting together their Thanksgiving feasts.

But for those who are too ill to prepare the holiday meal, a local organization is stepping in to help.

Food & Friends will provide complete holiday meals to people living with AIDS, HIV, cancer and other serious illnesses.

The meals, which serve four people, include a full turkey and all the fixings.

A long line of volunteers was already forming at 4:00 a.m.

What began as a small group of volunteers in 1988 with a couple hundred clients is now a huge operation serving 3,000 clients living in D.C., Maryland and Virginia.

Throughout the year, 14,500 volunteers for Food & Friends.
