This time of year is really about helping others.

About 30 students and chefs from Liaison College recently partnered up with staff from the Hamilton Spectator to serve nearly 500 kids with turkey and all the fixings at Hess Street Public School.

“The food was fantastic but the reaction of these kids was even better. Many had seconds and thirds and some were trying turkey or gravy for the first time,” noted the Spectator’s Editor-in-Chief David Estok in a December 12 column.

The newspaper’s photographers and reporters created a poignant online slideshow of the event. Click here to watch it.

On that note, have a wonderful holiday!
