Thanksgiving Day Fall Feast

Serve with Give Back Cincinnati


Commitment: One-time serve
Perfect for: Groups, families

Fall Feast is a city-wide meal held each Thanksgiving Day at Duke Energy Center. Hundreds of volunteers prepare and serve Thanksgiving dinner to people who might not otherwise enjoy one, and guests receive gifts such as free coats, haircuts, vision screenings and flu shots.

Crossroads volunteers also serve meals at nursing homes, shelters and other care facilities across the city so that people who cannot attend the meal downtown or who would otherwise be alone will have community on Thanksgiving Day.

Since 2011, thousands upon thousands of people have been served, with loads of food and loads of love.

We’d love for you to join us! Ready?

Share A Meal and Clean-Up at Duke Energy Center

Share a Meal is probably the most unique volunteer opportunity at Fall Feast. The best gift you can give is your time and fellowship over a meal. Simply breaking bread with someone in need can be so meaningful for you and them. These are the volunteers that join in the ballroom at the dinner table, get conversation going, and share life with our guests. You meet the most amazing, unique people at Fall Feast. This position calls for people that are talkers, love to share, and want to make this more than a dinner for guests. Sign up individually, as a family, or small group.

Serving time: 12:00-3:30pm

Provide community to those who cannot join the meal downtown. Sign up individually or as a family or small group.
