The Samaritan House in San Mateo will continue its long-standing holiday tradition to serve Thanksgiving Dinner to 400 members of the community.
More than 60 volunteers and staff from the organization will serve the dinner from 1-4 p.m. at the King Center, located at 725 Monte Diable Ave.
Every year, Samaritan House reaches out to its neighbors in need to provide a delicious, traditional holiday meal and a cheerful place for people to go.
Community members are welcome to enjoy a Thanksgiving Day dinner cooked by Samaritan House staff – including turkey with stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, dessert, and a beverage. The festivities will include a DJ playing music as well as raffle prizes.
The Samaritan House Kitchen produces more than 145,000 meals each year and feeds more than 3,000 hungry people per month, a significant portion of whom are children.
The continuing challenge for families to meet their basic needs accounts for the approximate 10% increase in the number of meals prepared.
