Who's serving 50 turkeys?
Oct 11, 2013 / 5:00 am
Kelowna’s Gospel Mission will once again be feeding those looking for a turkey dinner on Monday afternoon.
Staff and volunteers are expecting to serve close to 700 meals and are preparing a feast that includes:
- 50 turkeys
- 16 hams
- 600 lbs of potatoes
- 40 lbs of mixed vegetables
- 60 litres of gravy
- a large amount of stuffing
- and lots of pie
"It is such an honour and privilege to provide a meal to our friends, a meal that many of us take for granted," says Gospel Mission Executive Director Randy Benson.
"Thank you so much to the good people of Kelowna whose generosity helps to make this event possible."
The average cost of preparing a basic Thanksgiving meal can stretch up to $60, and the reality is many families don’t have that luxury.
The annual dinner takes will take place between 12-5 p.m.
