Siloam Mission is cooking up an extravagant feast for roughly 950 people today in Winnipeg’s homeless population.
The Princess Street shelter’s annual Thanksgiving meal comes with all the trimmings and is served by compassionate volunteers.
The Mission expects a 20% increase in visitors this holiday season over last year. To avoid long line-ups outside, Siloam is opening up the fourth floor of its building for guests to be inside and enjoy entertainment from volunteers while they wait for their sitting.
The dinner starts at noon and runs until 2:30 p.m.
Project Echo and Elite Fitness will deliver 100 boxes of warm clothing prior to the dinner.
