Organizers prepare to feed thousands
Wauwatosa– The Salvation Army and partner 1290 WMCS AM are just days away from the 21stAnnual Christmas Family Feast. The organizations are preparing to serve thousands on Christmas Day at the Frontier Airlines Center, 400 W. Wisconsin Avenue. Christmas Family Feast hours are from 11:00 am to 2:30 p.m.
“The Christmas Family Feast is a Milwaukee tradition. What started out 21 years ago as a dinner to feed those in need has evolved into an important holiday event where a great meal serves as the centerpiece for a wonderful day of fellowship and community,” said event planner Don Rosette.
Major Robert Thomson, Salvation Army Divisional Commander for Wisconsin & Upper Michigan said, “Christmas is a wonderful time of year when we are all reminded of the many blessings we have. However, for many in our community, the holidays can be challenging. The economy has taken a toll on so many families and through the Christmas Family Feast we are able to share compassion and feel the real benefit of community.”
This year’s Christmas Family Feast menu will consist of roast turkey, baked ham, country stuffing, candied yams, sweet green peas, mashed potatoes, fresh baked dinner rolls, and an assortment of deserts and beverages.
Guests will receive complimentary gifts, while supplies last.
