Big Al’s will host its sixth annual Turkey Bowl benefiting the Meridian Food Bank Nov. 10-12. For every guest who bowls a turkey (three consecutive strikes), Big Al’s Meridian will donate a turkey to the Meridian Food Bank. Additionally, guests that bring in three non-perishable cans of food will receive a free shoe rental.

“The Meridian Food Bank is a brilliant foundation, and it’s truly a testament to the people of our community that it’s operated 100 percent by volunteers,” stated Big Al’s General Manager Jon Haslam. “We are thrilled that all donations will be going directly to support families right here in our backyard.”

Big Al’s, 1900 N. Eagle Road, will be open regular hours during the event.
