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 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.
