For 14 years we have been providing a FREE meal on Thanksgiving Day to the residents in the Hanford, Lemoore, Avenal and Armona areas. Last year we provided over 2,000 meals on Thanksgiving Day. We deliver meals to shut-ins and provide meals on site at the Lemoore Senior Citizens Center. We also make take outs available. This is all made possible by the donations received from individuals, businesses, churchs and service clubs. With special thanks to the Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino. Over 100 volunteers come together each year to make this possible.
This event is open to the public; seniors, single folks, military personnel and their dependants and those that have no place to go are welcome. Take-outs and free home deliveries are available in the Lemoore and Hanford area for anyone who cannot make it to the dinner’s location. For home delivery simply call 559-362-3419 from 10am until 2pm on Thanksgiving Day and a meal(s) will be delivered to your home. Home deliveries are limited to four meals per household. For take-outs, come to the Senior Center on Thanksgiving Day to order and pick-up meals. The meal will be a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, dressing, and green beans and of course dessert. This Thanksgiving Day Community Dinner is an event where people from all economic levels and all walks of life, can come together for a special meal.
This free dinner is made possible thanks to the generous donations of many individuals, service organizations, churches and businesses; with special thanks to the Tachi Palace Hotel & Casino. This is an opportunity to donate to a local charity and help feed people in our area. Last year over 2000 meals were served, 490 of them were home deliveries and over 800 were take-outs. This is all made possible thanks to the many volunteers who donate their time to help make this event a success.
