Paul AME Church, 2514 Williams St., Chattanooga, beginning at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 20. The event will last until organizers run out of food or 4 p.m.
Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, organizers are asking everyone to donate gift cards in lieu of can goods to support this year' event. All gift cards can be donated at the church on the day of the event, or they can be mailed as a general donation to the church at the address above. Please indicate YPD Dinner Donation on the envelope. Money orders are also acceptable; however, checks cannot be accepted.
Organizers said, "Not only will we feed the community, but we will prepare food baskets for several families throughout the community during the upcoming holiday season. If you know of someone that can benefit from a food basket, please let us know. We will need for you to provide their name, address, phone number, and how many family members are in their household. This will help us to provide enough food for that household."
All COVID-19 protocols will be followed. All meals will be distributed outside.
The menu is as follows:
- Turkey & Dressing
- Green Beans
- Potato Salad
- Cranberry Sauce
There is a limit of one meal per individual. You may call 423 421-4688 for any additional information.
