Sonoma Community Center and Vintage House Co-Hosting Free Thanksgiving Dinner!
This year’s Free Thanksgiving Dinner will take place as a drive-through with warm meals available for pickup curbside at the Sonoma Community Center’s back patio on Thanksgiving Day, November 26 starting at 1:00PM. Meals will be provided pre-packaged and sized as either a meal for two or for a family of four.
As always the meal will be made using locally sourced, fresh ingredients and will include all the traditional Thanksgiving fare. Longtime Sonoma Community Center volunteer and Rotarian Gary Edwards, along with his co-chef Daniel Quijada will lead the dinner preparations. Local groups and individuals including Bright Event Rentals, Paul’s Produce, Sonoma Market, Clover Dairy, and Joanne Romanini Distributing have also donated supplies and ingredients for the event. As in previous years Vintage House will provide all of the desserts for the dinner, focusing on classic pumpkin and apple pies.
There is no cost to pick-up a meal, however, donations are gratefully accepted to help offset the cost of producing the event.
“Although we are unable to come together in person and enjoy a meal with our friends and neighbors we believe the need is too great, and the tradition too important, to cancel this year,” according to the Center’s Josh Cutler, “we hope everyone enjoys a safe and healthy Thanksgiving while keeping our community in their thoughts.”
