Rubby Whitfield of Roro's said it's a tradition that goes back 21 years. The partnership with Stepping Up goes back around 10 years.

Whitfield said they had enough food to feed 300 people.

She said it's a way to show appreciation to a community that's supported them throughout the years.

"It's just like giving back to the neighborhood. Thanking them for supporting our businesses throughout the years," she said. "And just something we want to say we are thankful to be able to do this every year."
