Kirk Douglas will host his annual Thanksgiving meal for the homeless at the Los Angeles Mission today, and some big stars are expected to give him a hand.

Among those expected to help out are Zoe Saldana, Blair Underwood, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Mayor Villaraigosa, Councilman Dennis Zine, Police Chief Charlie Beck and many others.

The Mission is celebrating its 75th year of service to the community, with special food preparation and demonstrations on the street with Kogi BBQ Chef Roy Choi – best known for the Kogi BBQ Truck (and voted “Best New Chef” by Food & Wine in 2010). Roy has worked to bring a culinary experience to Skid Row unlike any other.

Kirk Douglas and his wife Anne, for whom the Anne Douglas Center for Women at the Los Angeles Mission is named, will host the Mission’s Thanksgiving dinner for the 7th year. Volunteers will serve the meal on the closed Fifth Street outdoor dining area starting at 11:00 AM.
