Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Planning for the 18th Community Thanksgiving Dinner is well underway, with new plans to bring everyone under the same roof.

BHS is expanding the dinner, they will have more seating and for the first time, offer transportation.

First Student transportation will pick up residents at convenient locations around the city. Locations are not yet determined.

Because of the additional seating and transportation, they will no longer offer home delivery and take home meals.

Binghamton Superintendent Dr. Peggy Wozniak is excited about the changes. She said, "Sitting down for a meal with neighbors, meeting people, making new friends, that's the underlying spirit of this entire effort.

The dinner is scheduled for Thursday, November 22nd from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Binghamton High School.
