A Message from the Bowery Mission
As posted on their page regarding Thanksgiving 2019 and feeding the homeless and the hungry.
During our 140th Thanksgiving celebration, The Bowery Mission plans to serve 15,000 meals over seven days — 7,000 on Thanksgiving Day alone — across nine campuses and with up to 25 partners in all five boroughs of New York City and in Newark, NJ.
On Thanksgiving Day (Thursday, November 28, 2019), at The Bowery Mission’s flagship location (Bowery campus), guests experiencing hunger and homelessness will receive a traditional Thanksgiving meal served with love in the Mission’s century-old chapel, with music and festive decorations for the holiday.
At the Bowery campus alone, our staff and 500 volunteers will serve guests across 10 meal services, taking place on the hour, from 8am to 5pm. In addition to a turkey dinner, each guest will receive a “practical care kit” including socks, a winter hat, gloves, and hygiene items.
During Thanksgiving Week, The Bowery Mission will also host holiday feasts at our other front-door campuses.
