BALTIMORE — So many Marylanders are living in food deserts and it can be challenging to find healthy food options especially during these times.

Adopt-A-Block is making it a little easier for those families.

They held their annual Thanksgiving dinner at the Dawson Safe Han Center in East Baltimore.

This year things were a little different because of the pandemic.

To comply with the CDC's health recommendations, Adopt-A-Block took its kitchen outside and offered a mobile dinner.

"It brings a sense of normalcy even in a time that's very not normal. It gives people something to look forward to and something to believe that hope is there. It's important that in an uncertain time to keep as many things as certain as possible."

Adopt-A-Block has been hosting this dinner since 1992.

The organization also provides hundreds of toys to children in need during the holidays.
