Everyone deserves a hot meal for Thanksgiving. Despite the challenges presented by the pandemic, St. Vincent de Paul will still make that happen with 4,500 Thanksgiving to-go meals for individuals experiencing homelessness and low-income families on Thanksgiving Day.
“COVID-19 required us at St. Vincent de Paul to completely shift our service model, and as we enter the holiday season, we have had to continue to be innovative in the ways we serve,” Associate CEO Shannon Clancy said. “2020 has been challenging and we hope to provide comfort and a moment of peace to each family we serve through a delicious, hot and healthy Thanksgiving meal.”
To-go meal service will be available at each of SVdP's five charity dining rooms. Guests will take home a roasted turkey with giblet gravy, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce and an apple or pumpkin pie. Special this year, Salad and Go is providing Fall Harvest Salads to accompany SVdP Thanksgiving meals.
“We’re so excited to offer this fresh and healthy option alongside our savory meal,” Director of Food Services Danielle McMahon said. “Salad and Go has been such a supportive partner during this tough year, so we can’t thank them enough for continuing to help us care for the most vulnerable in our community.”
