St. Monica's Thanksgiving Feast

This event has expired. Please visit the Events Calendar for current listings.

Each year on Thanksgiving Eve, St. Monica Catholic Community hosts a free Thanksgiving meal for the greater community. We continue this tradition for our 44th year by inviting guests to a Thanksgiving Feast in person at St. Monica for a warm sit-down thanksgiving meal and afterwards they will receive a package of new clothing and toiletry items for the winter months ahead. Last year we were able to serve over 700 guests, provide home bound meals to those that could not attend and were able to administer vaccines to those that needed them.

For the 44th Annual Thanksgiving Feast from 1pm to 4pm at St. Monica Catholic Community. A warm Thanksgiving meal will be served outside at tables. Following their meal guests will be escorted to a clothing boutique where they can choose new items such as: sleeping bags, thermals, new clothing, toiletry items and more. And finally, guests will have the opportunity to receive homeless prevention and assistance services, low-income assistance, medical assistance, and other housing related resources!

Guests may begin to line up at 11:30am on Weds Nov. 22nd. The line will begin at the church gates off Washington Avenue and will extend in the direction of 7th Street towards California Avenue. All packages and pets are left at Baggage Claim and returned to guests on their departure. We will not be distributing tickets ahead of time. Toilet facilities will be accessible to guests and bottled water will be provided.

For the safety of our guests and volunteers we will continue to follow any health regulations mandated by the county and city. Masks and hand sanitizer will be available.
