Free Thanksgiving Meals


Food connects us. The upcoming Thanksgiving holiday gives us a chance to break bread with people we have known forever and people we may never have met before. It brings us together around a shared table to kvetch, complain, discuss, disagree and focus on the good in each other and the world.
