Come Thanksgiving there will be several places where those in need can find a warm plate of food on Thanksgiving Day.

Most of us are fortunate enough to have a home and food on our table, yet there are individuals and families who barely have enough to eat, especially during the holiday season.

This Thanksgiving those in need will be able to attend one of six different places offering a free, hot meal including:

Convention Center

  • The 15th annual Thanksgiving Day meal at the Convention Center in downtown El Paso will be serving meals from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will be open to anyone who is in need or homeless.
