Officials at Metropolitan Ministries are planning to serve hundreds of families in need during their Thanksgiving holiday feast on Thursday afternoon.
At 5:30 a.m. on Thursday, the staff will begin the preparations to serve hot Thanksgiving meals to more than 450 homeless families at the holiday tent on the nation’s day of thanks, according to a news release from spokesman David Bledsoe.
This year, Metropolitan Ministries is working with the Salvation Army to transform its holiday tent at 400 West Palm Avenue into a welcoming banquet, providing comfort and a hot meal for hundreds of people in need, according to the release.
Families will be served at the tent starting at 11 a.m., and individuals will be served at 12:30 p.m.
No pre-registration is required, Bledsoe said.
