SALISBURY, Md.- The owners of a Salisbury restaurant will feed the homeless for free on Thanksgiving Day.

Turkey Day is almost here; that means the kitchen inside Caribbean Flava, a new Jamaican restaurant at the corner of Rt.13 and Main Street, is about to get busy. 

Elvis and Keischa Scott are the owners. Come Thanksgiving, the pair will not be cooking to sell, but cooking to give. They will provide free meals for the homeless.

"It's a hurting feeling to know that there are people out there that are hungry and don't have shelter,"  Mrs. Scott said. "God has blessed us, so it's only right for us to bless others."

The Scotts will prepare meals for up to 200 people from the Halo and Christian Shelters in Salisbury. Members from Refreshing Well, a local church, will be helping out with transportation. When the homeless arrive to the restaurant, they will line up at the front counter for service. They are welcome to stick around.

Mrs. Scott said she and her husband will be cooking plenty of food. She described some of the items on the menu.

"I bake. So, I'm baking 25 sweet potato pies, and he's [Elvis] going to do jerk turkey, baked turkey, " she said. 

And the list goes on.

"We're going to have rice, we're going to have yams, we're going to have string beans," she said.

The Scotts spent hundreds of dollars of their own money to buy the food. They never sought donations. They said they just wanted to do something great for those in need, and they are really excited.

 "I feel good," Mr. Scott said. "God enabled me to help somebody because he blessed me, so I'm trying to help somebody who needs it."

Sign-up sheets are inside both shelters.

Volunteers will join the Scotts to serve the homeless between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Thanksgiving.
