Free Yuletide Feast – To Go!
Meal pick up will be Wednesday December 23rd, 2-4pm
Staff at the Clair Nelson Center are really missing all of you community folks and the regular potlucks and other meals we used to share. We’re counting down to the shortest, darkest days of the year right now. Traditionally, winter holidays like Christmas, Yule, Hanukkah, and others are all about coming together with family and friends as a way to combat the darkness of the Winter Solstice and celebrating the return to the light with the new year.
Because this year is different, we are trying to be creative. Since we can’t be together in person, we have to find new ways to share happiness, love, hope, and gratitude. That is why we are offering a free Yuletide Feast – to go! With this meal, please know that we are all still here, our community is as strong as ever, and we will make it through these tough times.
This free Yuletide Feast will include Swedish meatballs, ham, macaroni and cheese, roasted root vegetables, green beans, and dessert items! All are welcome! Please click here or call 218-353-0300 to reserve free meals for your household.
