GRUB'S UP AS HARRISON AND CALISTA JOIN KIRK TO DISH UP HOT DINNERS

22 NOVEMBER 2007

When Los Angeles' homeless residents turned up for Thanksgiving dinner at one of the city's soup kitchens on Wednesday, they found that their servers included none other than Hollywood action man Harrison Ford.

The Raiders star joined veteran actor, Kirk Douglas at the seasonal event to welcome some 3,000 diners, while a band played festive tunes.

Helped by his partner, Brothers And Sisters, actress Calista Flockhart and her son Liam, Harrison wore a red apron and plastic gloves to dish out a traditional meal of turkey drumsticks, mashed potatoes, rolls and pumpkin pie.

Kirk, the star of iconic movies such as Spartacus and Ulysses, has hosted the charity get together for the past three years. Thanking his celebrity assistants, the 90-year-old told the politicians and actors present, "(your) involvement will help (your) souls as much as it helps the people being served".
