Fred Jordan Mission's Annual Traditional Thanksgiving Banquet for Thousands of Poor & Homeless Children, Women and Men on Skid Row

Hundreds of volunteers cooking and serving  over 1 ton of turkey, 80 gallons of roast gravy,  80 gallons of gravy, 585 pounds of green beans,  560  pounds of candied yams, 500 pounds of mashed potatoes, hundreds of pounds of traditional cornbread stuffing, cranberry sauce, 400 pumpkin pies, and 220 gallons  of fruit punch for this extraordinary feast. 




In addition, each guest will receive a family food gift bag.




This annual dinner doesn't draw only homeless, people.  It also draws working families who can't afford to cook a Thanksgiving Day dinner of their own.  The Mission is expecting a record number of people.




Additionally, we are already preparing to bring Christmas to thousands of poor children and families and are in desperate need of unwrapped toys for these impoverished boys and girls. We are inviting all Thanksgiving volunteers, or anyone who wants to help, to bring a $15.00 to $20.00 unwrapped toy to the Mission anytime between Thanksgiving and December 20th.  What a wonderful way to celebrate Thanksgiving!

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 26th, 2015


The event officially begins at 10:00 a.m. The Thanksgiving Banquet will be served throughout the day all day until 2:00pm (come as early as you can). 




Thanksgiving Preparations and cooking turkeys with the trimmings will be happening all day on Wednesday, November 25th  into the night and throughout the day on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 26, 2015.
