Thanksgiving Meal

Need a warm meal and encouragement on Thanksgiving? No qualification needed!

The Kokomo Rescue Mission has offered a Thanksgiving Feast for many years and this year will be no exception. Last year, in light of the current CDC guidelines and our desire to keep everyone safe, we offered the meals as delivery, drive through and Grab & Go only.

Check back with us for the times and location of this year’s Thanksgiving Feast on Thursday, November 25.

This season more than ever, we want to extend a warm invitation to all who would like a meal.  We treasure the opportunity to use this year to encourage our fellow neighbors and remind them that we care and they are not alone.
