Let's talk turkey

Many people will prepare elaborate meals on Thanksgiving Day, yet others don't know when or from where their next meal will come. Thankfully, some people in Sacramento are helping out the less fortunate with a number of free Thanksgiving dinners this week. Sacramento Loaves & Fishes already hosted a free dinner on Tuesday and will be closed on Thanksgiving, so it's been handing out a reference sheet for those in need of a meal on the holiday. Here are some free-meal options from that sheet, which Loaves' executive director Sister Libby Fernandez shared with SN&R: The Salvation Army (corner of 12th and N. B streets) offers food from 10 a.m. to noon on Thursday, November 28, Thanksgiving Day; the Union Gospel Mission (400 Bannon Street) serves dinner at 8:30 p.m. after a mandatory service at 7:30 p.m. also on Thanksgiving Day; and the Cordova Neighborhood Church (10600 Coloma Road in Rancho Cordova) serves meals at 5 p.m. on Friday, November 29.
