GLIDE, St. Anthony’s to serve free Thanksgiving dinners to thousands

Two Tenderloin-based food kitchens are gearing up for the Thanksgiving holiday, with volunteers working around the clock to get food prepared.

GLIDE is planning on serving thousands of guests a Thanksgiving meal, accompanied by a special celebration: Reverend Cecil Williams, the GLIDE Ensemble and The Change Band will all be performing in the GLIDE sanctuary at 10 a.m.

From 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. GLIDE will be serving a traditional Thanksgiving feast to those who stop in.

Down the street, St. Anthony’s expects to serve 1,000 guests Thursday afternoon—twice as many as their Padua Dining Room can normally hold. Over the holidays, the food kitchen expands its capacity to be able to accommodate larger crowds. Hours will also be extended, from noon-2:30 p.m. on Thanksgiving day.

“Everyday we prepare and serve food for the less fortunate in our community” said Max Torres, operations manager at Padua Dining Room,  “No one is turned away, but during the holidays there is something very powerful about planning and sharing a special meal with all the fixings.”
