Buy this festive T-shirt and help ease poverty in Dallas

Norma’s Cafe serves Thanksgiving dinner to anyone who wants one from its original location in Oak Cliff, and they’ve been doing it every Turkey Day for 30 years.

The shirts are available at all Norma’s locations, including the one on Park Lane, as well as online.

Employees volunteer to cook and serve, and over the years, they’ve fed 160,000 people on Thanksgiving at no charge.

To celebrate the tradition’s 30th year, Norma’s teamed up with Bullzerk to produce this Texas flag-as-a-pie T-shirt, perfect for your holiday styling. The shirt costs $23 and 100 percent of the proceeds will go to CitySquare, which “provides service programs for hunger, health, housing and hope” to residents of the Dallas area.

The shirts are available at all Norma’s locations as well as online.

Here are some stats from Norma’s 30 years of free Thanksgiving:

· 52,000 pounds of mashed potatoes
· 52,000 pounds of cornbread dressing
· 28,000 slices of pie
· 700,000 slices of turkey
· 6,000 gallons of gravy
