On November 24, 2022, Thanksgiving Day, Food For Friends provided a Thanksgiving meal at the H.E.L.P.S Ministry in St. Charles. The meal was catered by Lee N Eddies, a long time and valued partner.
Food for Friends helps make this event a success every year! The meal consisted of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, vegetables, pasta, gravy, Hawaiian meatballs and jello. H.E.L.P.S. Ministry provided the desserts and beverages. We are happy to report that 75 guests attended the event and were provided a delicious meal. Additional meals were delivered to families that could not attend.
Approximately 11 volunteers attended, they were all amazing! The volunteers were great with set up, serving the meal and the cleanup. The guests and the volunteers kept saying thank you for having the meal during these hectic times. They wanted to give thanks and needed to gather with others.
Overall event was great! We are so grateful for the partnership and volunteers.
