Thanksgiving Dinner

The Organic Soup Kitchen’s Free Thanksgiving Community Dinner

Thanksgiving conjures thoughts of feasts and the gathering of friends and family, but not everyone can achieve that. That’s why the Organic Soup Kitchen has hosted a free Thanksgiving dinner for the Santa Barbara community for the past three years. And this year, they are doing it again. In 2011, more than 1,000 homeless and low-income folks received a meal that included turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie — all donated from area businesses. In addition to yummy food, there will be live music and kids’ activities. The dinner takes place Thursday, November 22, 1-5 p.m., at the Veterans Memorial Building (112 W. Cabrillo Blvd.).
