Free meals on Thanksgiving

November 25, 2009

Since this story ran Tuesday, I’ve learned of a few more places that will be serving free Thanksgiving meals tomorrow. I’m posting the entire list here. If you know of others, please post them or let me know. I’ll add them. Note: The linked story also lists volunteer opportunities for Thanksgiving Day and restaurants that will be open.

Look here to see a map showing all of these locations.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
