Community Thanksgiving Feast

Volunteer Applications

Volunteer opportunities are now filled. We invite you to join the meal as one of our guests. Entrance to the dining hall line is located at 5th and Marshall Streets. An ADA entrance is located on Marshall Street, between 3rd and 5th.

A Richmond tradition since 2005, this event offers a free celebration of Community, welcoming all to the table for food and fellowship. Special emphasis is placed on identifying - and including - the homeless, elderly individuals, working class families, local military servicemen and those who otherwise would be alone during the Holiday. Approximately 3000 guests and volunteers join together yearly to make this a wonderful and heartwarming event.
