Sharon Gibbs, president of the organization, said this was the fifth year of the event, known as the John J. Eimans Food Basket Program. She added nearly five dozen meals were donated around the area.
"It went well," Gibbs said. "We delivered to 55 families in the Alhambra Unified School District, in Alhambra, a few in Monterey Park, a few in Rosemead."
Gibbs added it wasn't just a turkey the group brought.
"We had the full complete Thanksgiving dinner, plus some games for the families to play. Everybody was thrilled."
In addition, Gibbs said Thanksgiving isn't the lone time the Rotary Club comes out the feed the public. Members also do this in spring.
"We also do this at Easter," she said. "We bring an Easter food basket."
The program was named after Eimans, a a fire apparatus technician from the Alhambra Fire Department. He died earlier this year after a battle with pancreatic cancer.
