Free community meal planned at Thanksiving

A free community Thanksgiving meal will be served this year from noon to 4 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 28, at the United Methodist Church, 615 W. 15th St.

The planning has begun, according to coordinator Karrie Hamilton Williamson.

The meal includes roasted turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, dressing, vegetables and pie. The meals are free and open to the community.

Delivery of meals to those unable to come to the church has been and will continue to be an important part of the day.

Hamilton Williamson has been part of the dinner since it originated.

“I knew some people who spend the holiday alone – sometimes I did,” she said. “I went to the church and asked if we could try this.”

Reservations for the meals, both at the church and for delivery, are strongly encouraged, and can be done by calling 651-437-4398. The meals are served on a first come, first served basis. Anyone interested in making a donation for the meal can call Hamilton Williamson at 651-253-1256.
