More than 150 volunteers will help serve 7,000 pounds of turkey all all the trimmings at The Salvation Army community Thanksgiving feast at the Colorado Convention Center on Thursday.
The homeless and anyone else are welcome to come and enjoy a warm traditional meal of roasted turkey, mashed potatoes, string beans and other dishes, according to the Salvation Army.
Volunteers will start serving at 11:30 a.m. at Exhibit Hall B of the convention center at 700 14th Street. The entrance is on Welton Street. Those who come early will get coffee, hot chocolate and cookies.
“This event is great example of how generous and caring Denver truly is” says Lt. Colonel Daniel Starrett of the The Salvation Army, “This is a beautiful example of our community standing together to ensure every one of our neighbors has a full belly this holiday.”
In line with their “Zero Hunger – Zero Waste” mission, King Soopers/City Market has donated 100 percent of the food.
“For more than 44 years we have partnered with The Salvation Army to help those who come seeking help. We are pleased to add another year to our tradition to serve those in need.” said Adam Williamson of King Soopers.
Denver Sheriff Department deputies, Denver Broncos players and The Salvation Army staff and numerous other volunteers have prepared the food.
