Laurel restaurant serves free holiday lunch

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - A Laurel restaurant opened its doors Thursday to serve free holiday meals to anyone who dropped by. "The Loft" served Thanksgiving dinners, including green-bean casserole and banana pudding.

The owners got the idea after visiting Brownstone's Restaurant in Hattiesburg last Thanksgiving.

Today's meal was served in the old Central Avenue Cafe, soon to be the new location of "The Loft."
