After the feast, there are the leftovers. Some of them are too good to give up — you know you like those turkey-stuffing sandwiches are better than the actual dinner. And no one wants that half-eaten dish of sweet potatoes.

Here's a list of where you can donate Thanksgiving leftovers in Philly.
If all your leftovers went to a better cause than your empty stomach, but you're still craving gravy and cranberry, we have nine options for you. Ten if you count the Wawa Gobbler, which we don't (don't @ us). There's the turducken option at Jake's Sandwich Board, plus several other mouthwatering sandwiches, poutines and other Thanksgiving-inspired creations, no reheating required.

Lining up outside Walmart for a discount TV and a limited edition toy might be a national trend, but the Black Friday name can be traced back to Philly Police in the 1960s. Here's the story of how they tried to convince everyone to stay home the day after Thanksgiving.
