- FOX 5 Takes Park in 18th Annual Great Thanksgiving Dish:  It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving for the FOX 5 Atlanta family without spending a few hours in the Renaissance Waverly Hotel kitchen, cooking up Thanksgiving dinner for local families.


The 18th Annual Great Thanksgiving Dish takes place Tuesday, November 22, and brings together local media personalities to help prepare traditional Thanksgiving meals for those served by the Atlanta Community Food Bank.  Under the direction of Renaissance Waverly Hotel Executive Chef Rene Pax, the television reporters and anchors snap green beans, mash potatoes, and season stuffing for a whopping 31,000 Thanksgiving meals.  Those meals will include more than a thousand pounds of turkey, 800 pounds of mashed potatoes, 250 pounds of cranberry sauce, and 400 pumpkin pies. 


Good Day Atlanta’s Paul Milliken spent some time in the kitchen with his colleagues this morning, learning more about the Atlanta Community Food Bank’s mission to end hunger.
