The inclusive event takes 700 volunteers to serve 3,000 meals on Thursday at the La Crosse Center.



Everyone is invited to The La Crosse Community Thanksgiving Dinner, an inclusive event at the La Crosse Center’s South Hall on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 24, to enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal. Enjoy the day with friends, family, neighbors, and members of our community.

The event and meals are completely free of charge thanks to community donations, and free will donations by those attending.

Vince Ristow told Z93 it is their 40th year serving our community. Football fans will be glad to know the event will have a 65 inch TV for the NFL’s Bills/Lions game.

“We will have all kinds of different stuff there for you to do. There’s therapy dogs, there’s balloon animals, and cutouts for photos.”

This year, doors open at 10am, and dinner is served from 11am to 3pm. Meals are available for dine-in, carry-out, and pre-ordered delivery. Delivery request deadline is Monday, November 21 at 5 p.m. online or by calling 608-419-5845. Community members can also request transportation to and from the event HERE.

There are still opportunities to sign up to volunteer HERE.
