FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – On Thursday, St. Mary`s Soup Kitchen hosted its 43rd annual complimentary Thanksgiving dinner for the Fort Wayne community.
All week, volunteers were busy cooking and putting the finishing touches on nearly 1,000 meals that were served to the community.
“We do it because there is a need for it,” said Patrick McBride, chairman for St. Mary’s Soup Kitchen Thanksgiving Meal.
Traditionally this dinner occurs in-person, however due to the pandemic, the format was modified to be carry-out only. Meals were available to pick up at St. Mary’s Soup Kitchen, located at 1101 Lafayette St, on Thanksgiving Day from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. and included the traditional Thanksgiving items. Masks and social distancing was required.
