   If one didn’t know better, they’d have sworn it was Thanksgiving.
   The buffet included ham, chicken and dressing, yams, green beans and all the traditional foods one associates with the holiday.
   “I’ve been cooking for two weeks,” said the Rev. Cora Ford Ingram, founder of the Plum Street Soup Kitchen, as she ladled giblet gravy onto the plate of one of her guests.
   Today was the annual Harvest Dinner, the yearly fundraiser for the soup kitchen. Dozens sat in folding chairs, at tables decorated prettily with pumpkins, multicolored leaves and dried corn.
   Since 1999 the soup kitchen has served hundreds if not thousands of hungry persons in Grenada County.
   The poor can get a meal there each Monday and Thursday, but so can shut-ins, the elderly and just about anybody else who needs a smile and some home-cooked goodness.
