The event, which is organized with help from the Peace Tree restaurant, Moonflower Market, Red Cliffs Lodge and many other sponsors will be held Christmas Day, Wednesday, Dec. 25, from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Grand Center, 182 North 500 West.
This year’s meal will be prepared by Kay Davis of Moonflower Market and Kara Stoner. Red Cliffs Lodge, which has cooked the meal in the past, has donated the money for the food. Peace Tree has offered the use of its commercial kitchen for preparing the meal.
“We see it as a great opportunity to give back to a community that gives to us all year long,” said Karen Whipple of Peace Tree.
Last year 500 meals were served on Christmas Day, including delivery to those who are homebound.
“We’re doing this simply because feeding our community is important,” Davis said.
Each year, more than 100 volunteers help to cook, serve, clean, decorate and coordinate for the event.
“We are so fortunate to live in a community where everyone wants to get involved and help one another out. It’s truly an expression of the holiday spirit,” said Holly Dinsmore of WabiSabi.
