More than 100 homeless people had a hot Thanksgiving meal Thursday at a “Gratitude Dinner” hosted by the group Black Lives for Humanity.

The meal included Navajo tacos, fruit, and a pumpkin and apple pie, and was served at a wasteland near 400 South and 500 West in Salt Lake City. Dave John, who is Navajo, cooked the Navajo tacos with the help of volunteers. John is known for traveling with a portable kitchen and preparing meals for homeless people.

The group also distributed clothes and blankets to the participants. Lane Neaman drummed and sang round dance songs in southern Oklahoma.
