Several organizations handing out free Thanksgiving meals



On Thursday, several organizations will be handing out free Thanksgiving meals to the community. 

This year, Thanksgiving dinner costs are up 20% according to the Farm Bureau. The Bureau reports this year, a Thanksgiving feast for ten people will cost around $64 or around $6.50 a person.

This is an increase of nearly $20 dollars for a meal compared to two years ago, so a hot free meal could help out several families this holiday.

Powerhouse Community Development is just one organization that will be handing out hot meals from 11:00 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Thursday. The organization will be providing free meals at the Columbia Senior Center located on Business Loop.

Some foods on the menu include turkey, mac and cheese and cranberry sauce.

Also in Columbia, The Salvation Harbor House will be handing out traditional home-cooked Thanksgiving meals at 602 North Ann St. 

The organization plans to hand out meals beginning at noon and running through 1:30 Thursday afternoon.

In Jefferson City, The Immaculate Conception Church along McCarty street will be handing out Thanksgiving lunch from 11:00 am until 1:00 in the afternoon.

Both dine-in and carry-out options are available.
