ENJOY A FREE THANKSGIVING DINNER AT THESE LOCAL PLACES

HEAVEN’S WINDOWS Address: 2300 Bancroft Drive Spring Valley, CA 91977 Phone: 619-303-7806

It’s hard to believe that the start of the holiday season is already upon us. It seems as though the moment that the autumnal season begins, you can blink your eyes once and it’s already time to ring in the new year. While this festive time of year encourages people to gather together with friends and family to break bread and enjoy each other’s company, if your funds are low, planning these celebrations can bring about far more stress than excitement. According to a survey conducted by GOBankingRates, the vast majority of Americans end up spending at least $150 on groceries for their Thanksgiving meal, and that’s

FATHER JOE’S VILLAGES Address: 1501 Imperial Ave.

San Diego, CA 92101 Phone: 619-233-8500

The nonprofit is a community resource network that promotes available resources and provides emergency services for residents through hunger relief and nutritional education. While they provide groceries to approximately 7,150 households with roughly 891,500 lbs. of food each year, they also open their doors on Thanksgiving to provide a warm meal with turkey to anyone who comes in.

To combat hunger in the San Diego homeless community, Father Joe’s Villages serves hot, nourishing meals 365 day a year. Altogether, staff and volunteers prepare and serve more than 1 million meals each year in our dining rooms and the Franklin Antonio Public Lunch Line.

If you and your family are looking for a place to spend Thanksgiving this year, feel free to head on down to Second Chances Bread of Life to enjoy a delicious feast prepared by volunteers.

In this organization, volunteers help prepare and serve meals twice a week, year-round, but spend extra time concocting a Thanksgiving meal worth remembering. Plus, local teen youth groups are invited to provide special event entertainment during meal times.

not including any extra cash spent on beverages and decorations. In the end, it seems that although this holiday is meant to leave our stomachs feeling full and our hearts feeling grateful, it often leaves our pockets empty too. If you’re hoping to partake in a delicious Thanksgiving meal but are concerned about finances, you still have a number of good options. There are several locations throughout the community that host their own festive feasts and are inviting any and all locals to come celebrate the holiday with them. Here are a few to consider.

This vegan/vegetarian restaurant is offering those in the community the chance to enjoy a free Thanksgiving meal! Gather your family and friends and stop by their San Diego location on Thanksgiving day for free drinks and plant-based bites. Early arrival is strongly suggested, but no reservations are necessary.

From all of us here, Happy Thanksgiving!
