Provide a Meal this Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a time where we desire to gather together and enjoy a meal with family and friends.  It’s also a time where we welcome the person who has nowhere else to go so they know they are not alone.   On this day, we make room in our hearts and our stomachs.

At Bakersfield Homeless Center, we have a big table and we invite anyone that is in need to come and find rest and help.  This holiday season, we expect to serve over 30,000 meals to the families staying in our homeless shelter and to community members who have fallen on hard times.
