BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- One Bowling Green man has been cooking for those in need for more than 30 years, and he's hoping to host a Thanksgiving dinner for those in need of a home-cooked meal this year.
"Two turkeys, two hams, potato salad, bean salad, egg salad, macaroni salad, just in general cornbread," listed James Conner, Sr.
It's a large menu that one man cooks in his own home to serve others.
"I spend about $100 a week on food," James said.
He has a love of cooking, and a passion for helping others.
"Homeless. He feeds the homeless. He feeds anyone that comes around. He really does do that," said his brother, Larry Conner.
He and his brother know what those with nothing are going through.
"I've been there and done it," Larry said.
They've both been homeless at some point.
"Six years, underneath the bridge -- State Street bridge," Larry said.
He said it was a dark place in his life.
"And it's not good. You get underneath that bridge -- cold weather -- it's not good," he said, tearing up over the memory.
They said they've known people who helped them and others in the same situation, and they want to give as much as they're able.
Larry said no one really understands what it's like to be homeless unless they've been homeless themselves. He also said Bowling Green needs more shelters and people who would rather help than judge.
"I'd say help them. You've never been in that situation. Help them," he said to those who just pass the homeless by without a second thought.
James said he prays before anyone comes over for a meal -- hoping to not only feed them, but touch their hearts.
"I enjoy doing it. I will always do it, and I won't quit," James said.
He said he's had anywhere from 20 to 50 people come over for his weekly meals.
He said anyone who needs a meal can call him at (270) 303-7625.
