2018 Thanksgiving Meals

While we want to wish everyone who is reading this a happy Thanksgiving, we know that Thanksgiving (and the holiday season in general) can be a difficult time for many people. Lack of access to food or a place to gather can make that even more difficult for some, and so we've done our best to collect information about what's available in our local area. If you know of any more options, please do let us know by This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

EVERYBODY will find a time that works for them.
