Hundreds of volunteers put the "giving" in Thanksgiving today.

For the eighth year the Giving Heart community Thanksgiving feast welcomed those who may have otherwise had to go without a meal for the holiday.

They planned for 3,000 people to attend the event, which was hosted at the Greater Richmond Convention Center. People came together with strangers and shared  a meal, along with their personal stories.

Photojournalist Chris Norton captured the event.
