A growing Manteca tradition — a free community Thanksgiving dinner at Mt. Mike’s Pizza at North Main Street and Louise Avenue — takes place Thursday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Manteca Sunrise Kiwanis and Manteca Rotary are hosting the 6th Annual “Thanksgiving in Manteca” for those in the community that otherwise would not have a traditional Thanksgiving meal or someone to share this day with.
Volunteers are preparing 200 turkeys to serve an estimated 2,000 meals on Thanksgiving.
There several ways to obtain a meal: dine-ins, to go, delivery and preordering meals for individuals or small to large groups. Meals are limited, and based on a first come, first serve basis. It is highly recommended to preorder by calling Liotard at (209) 825.4331 email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You need to leave your name, address and phone number and number of meals. Deliveries or pick-ups are between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Those that have donated so far are Manteca Rotary, $1,000; Sunrise Kiwanis, $2,000; Manteca Police Officers Association, $2,000; Manteca Interact, $300; and Second Harvest Food Bank that is providing the turkeys.
