Union Gospel Mission Serving 300 Meals to Homeless Thanksgiving Day 

Portland, Ore., - Union Gospel Mission’s Thanksgiving Day meal for those experiencing homelessness will take place on Thursday, November 24 at 10:00 a.m. at 15 NW Third Avenue.

The meal includes traditional favorites like turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, tropical fruit salad, cranberry sauce, a dinner roll and butter, and pumpkin pie and whipped cream. Guests will have the choice to sit down and dine inside or take their meal to go. They will also receive a snack sack for later in the day. 

UGM began their Thanksgiving celebrations Wednesday, November 16th at their overnight shelter in SE Portland with 80 Thanksgiving meals served. This week they are serving Thanksgiving meals all week on the Search + Rescue outreach in addition to the Thanksgiving Day meal at the downtown location. 

In all, they will serve around 1,000 Thanksgiving meals to those experiencing homelessness. They cooked about 85 turkeys in total and about 300 pounds of mashed potatoes. 

“I’m very thankful to everyone who has donated to UGM to help us provide every Thanksgiving meal. We could not do this without them,” says Lori Quinney Food Service Director for Union Gospel Mission
