Natural Healing Center, a marijuana dispensary based out of Grover Beach, gave away hundreds of turkeys to families in need on Sunday at the Madonna Inn.

It’s the company’s third year giving away Thanksgiving food with the goal of alleviating some of the holiday stress.

Everything was given on a first-come-first-serve basis. The meal goes a long way for families in need.

“I mean I came from a low-income family myself, so maybe a big Thanksgiving meal or toys just aren’t possible for a single parent that is struggling. Due to my own situation growing up, I feel like it’s a good time to reach back,” said Helios Dayspring, President of Natural Healing Center.

The company donated 400 turkeys.
