Ottawa, ON – Planning is underway for The Ottawa Mission’s annual Thanksgiving Dinner, coming up Monday October 10th. This annual event provides a special holiday dinner for those who are homeless or hungry in the community on Thanksgiving weekend. Once again this year, The Mission is appealing for community donations of large frozen turkeys for its Thanksgiving Dinner, which last year served up just over 3,000 plates of delicious turkey dinner.
“It takes between 80 – 90 large turkeys to feed everyone who comes to our special Thanksgiving Dinner,” says Chef Ric Watson, Manager of Food Services at The Ottawa Mission. “Our kitchen volunteers and staff are cooking for quite a few days before the special holiday event to ensure everyone will have a delicious turkey dinner.”
Frozen turkey donations can be dropped off at anytime at The Ottawa Mission’s front desk, located at 35 Waller St. Arrangements can also be made to have donations picked up by calling 613-234-1144, ext 248.
The Ottawa Mission’s Thanksgiving Dinner for those who are homeless and hungry will take place on Thanksgiving Monday, October 10th from 11:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. at 35
Waller Street, Ottawa.
