Turkey Troops

The gang here at Extranomical LOVES Thanksgiving! And what better way to give thanks than to take part in a community outreach program that provides Thanksgiving meals to the less fortunate? In November 2009, Extranomical Tours teamed up with local celebrity chef, Ryan Scott and the Turkey Troops. You may remember him from the show Top Chef! 

You can read all about the event here. Here are just some of the photos from the Turkey Troops’ Thanksgiving:
