COMSTOCK PARK, Mich. — Chef Jenna Arcidiacono from Amore Trattoria Italiana says there has been a big demand for smaller Thanksgiving portions this year due to the pandemic.

"People were asking if we'd make smaller portions for people like two because it's harder to make a turkey and serve two people so they're asking us 'hey are you gonna make smaller portions so we can be at home and be safe', Arcidiacono said.

For the first time ever, meals were offered to people ahead of time over the last two days.

She says she used to be closed for Thanksgiving Day and offer lasagna but this year they offered a Thanksgiving dinner, lasagna, and adult beverages.

"It's what's getting us through honestly to have the support of the community and how excited they were to come and pick up food from us it meant the world we feel honored the community is blessing us with their orders we're so proud we're feeding you," she said

Arcidiacono said she estimates they fed 1,000 people in the last few days adding they may do this kind of thing again in the future.
