During this season of giving, multiple free community Thanksgiving meals will take place around Colusa County tomorrow (Thursday).
A Hand Up, the Colusa-based organization that has fed the homeless and the hungry for the past 12 years, will host their annual free community Thanksgiving meal on Thursday.
“This year again, due to concerns regarding the COVID-19 virus, we will be providing the lunch curbside for pickup, rain or shine,” said organizer Robin Rauch. “We are hopeful of returning to our regular sit down meal next year.”
According to Rauch, the Thanksgiving lunch is for anyone who is by themselves, or simply does not want to cook this year.
This year’s lunch will include a full Thanksgiving meal featuring turkey, ham, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, yams, a vegetable, cranberry sauce and dessert.
The meals will be available for curbside pickup from the Colusa Presbyterian Church, located on the corner of Fourth and Jay Streets, Colusa, from 10:30-11:30 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day.
“We look forward to seeing you!,” said Rauch.
A Hand Up is a community service organization made up of five local churches, including the Colusa Assembly of God, Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, the First Presbyterian Church of Colusa, St. Stephens Episcopal Church and Trinity United Methodist Church. In addition to providing meals to those in need for more than a decade, the organization also provides tents, warm blankets and other basic necessities.
