Thanksgiving Meal 2018

Homeless and Hungry Girl

We need help setting our table for 1,000 guests!

Loaves & Fishes is an oasis of survival services for hundreds of men, women, and children experiencing homelessness every day. As the holiday season grows cold and wet we are ready with warm clothes, tarps and sleeping bags, hearty meals, and anything else we can offer to ease our guests’ literal and figurative burdens.

The holidays can be an especially difficult time for our guests. Amid the season’s themes of family and community, the demeaning and uncertain nature of homelessness can leave our guests feeling all the more forgotten. This is why our Thanksgiving feast on Tuesday, November 20th is so important. The hearty meals and warm, dry dining room is a reminder to our guests that we see them, we care for them, and we will always be here for them.

You can be the reason our guests are thankful this holiday season. We need enough of the items below to feed a thousand people at our annual Thanksgiving meal.

Our Thanksgiving shopping list for 1,000 guests

We cannot open our doors to so many needy men, women, and children without you. Here’s how you can help:

  • Give items from our Thanksgiving dinner needs list by November 16th. Our warehouse is at 1351 North C Street in Sacramento, and is open from 7:00 am to 2:45 pm every weekday or from 7 am to 3:45 pm from November 12th to 16th.
  • Don’t have time to get the shopping done? Donate here or send a check to PO Box 13495, Sacramento CA 95813, and we’ll take care of the shopping for you. Less than $4 is all it takes to feed one of our guests a hearty, nutritious meal.
  • Start a Thanksgiving food drive with your friends, coworkers, church or group members, and family. Many hands make light work!
  • List your business, church, or other organization as a Thanksgiving meal drop-off site to make it easier for your community to give. Call 916-637-2514 to learn more, and we will update our Holiday Collection Site Map with your location and the item(s) you are accepting.
  • On behalf of our staff, volunteers, and especially our guests, thank you so much for making our work possible!
