House of Prime Rib serves prime rib luncheon for 3,000 people

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Glide Memorial Church received a special holiday treat on Wednesday. The House of Prime Rib served up a tasty prime rib luncheon for 3,000 people.

That's something restaurant owner Joe Betz has been doing for 23 years. He says it's his way of giving back for all he has.

"Things can happen to us. We are not guaranteed wine and honey all the time. And when things go bad, we have to help out a little," Betz said.

Glide founder Cecil Williams was at the dining hall greeting people.

The House of Prime Rib donated 2,000 pounds of prime rib for Wednesday's lunch.

Preparations are already underway for Glide's Christmas dinner on Thursday, when the church will provide a ham and turkey meal for 5,000 people.
