Where to volunteer on Thanksgiving

If you’d like to serve a meal on Thanksgiving, it can take a little time to track down what organizations are open and serving food that day.

So, we compiled a list of who is open and needs volunteers. Some require in-person training beforehand, so sign up as soon as you can.

The Twin Cities Thanksgiving meal is full already, but click here to see opportunities in greater Minnesota.
