Oroville, Calif..— Hundreds made their way to the Eagles Hall on Montgomery Street to enjoy more than just a free meal.

Organizers with the Oroville Aerie Fraternal Order of Eagles told Action News Now that this dinner has been going on for the last 40 years and is made possible thanks to their members and about 75 volunteers of all ages.

Guests were treated to turkey, ham, mashed potatoes and all the fixings. Four months of planning went into today's dinner, and cooking started five days ago.

In the past they have served up to 500 people. While it may sound like a lot of work, organizers said it's worth it.

"We feed everyone that comes through the door; the true meaning of Christmas is people helping people, this is what we do every year," said Fred Hugg of the Oroville Aerie Fraternal Order of Eagles.

All kids who attended were able to leave with a free toy.

But the giving didn't stop there, both children and adults were able to leave with donated clothes to help keep them warm during the winter months.
