Do we feed people? Does the word 'feed' fit best when we talk about guests or visitors? Here is the sentence:

This organization feeds thousands of people who attend training sessions here.

Shouldn't we say:

This organization serves thousands of people with food who attend training sessions here.

Or there could be some other choice as well?

    There's nothing wrong with the original sentence. In fact, in that context, it sounds more idiomatic to me than anything else. – Jason Bassford May 22 at 7:33

I suggest restructuring your sentence:

This organization provided catering (that is, they catered food)] to the people who attended the training session.

According to Cambridge:

cater (verb) to provide food and drinks for an occasion or event: Who catered your party?
