Resources for free Thanksgiving meals.

Part of the importance of Thanksgiving is enjoying a meal with family, friends, or those who are important to you. Unfortunately, having a home-cooked meal will not be in everyone’s reach this year. I’ve compiled this list of places which offer a free meal on Thanksgiving which I hope will be of use.

Picka: A Python module for data generation and randomization.

Picka generates randomized data either from lists of known good data (or bad) stored in a sqlite database, or by generating randomized realistic data, using string formatting.

Picka has a function for any field you would need filled in.

Picka was created by Anthony Long and is available for download on pypi, or github.
