Thank you for being a part of our 29th annual Thanksgiving Community Dinner. This year we served 1350 meals and gave away 600 coats and jackets.
Thanksgiving Day starts off with a coat give away. Those in need are invited to come to our restaurant to receive a donation. The success of this portion of the holiday event is due in large part from our support from The Windjammer/Best Western.
It's true, it takes a village! We can't thank our many vendor-partners enough. Special shout out to the following:
Misty Knoll Farms
Sam Mazza Farms
Swish White River Company
Hunger Is Hard, Baking Is Easy
The Center For Technology Esses
1500 lbs turkey
100 # cranberry sauce
400 # stuffing
600 # mashed potatoes
50 gallons of gravy
50 gallons of coffee
60 # butter
We are proud to be celebrating our 30th year in 2020. Please check back in September for more updates.

We love our hometown, and giving back to our community is just how we do business. We can’t imagine it any other way. From buying local ingredients to donating meals each month to the Burlington Emergency Shelf, we take pride in caring for our neighbors.
