Salvation Army prepares 32nd annual Christmas feast, offering takeout meals and curbside pickup
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Salvation Army is hard at work preparing the 32nd annual Christmas feast.
Usually, they serve more than 8,000 people with a sit-down meal inside the Wisconsin Center, but due to Covid-19, things are different.
All the meals will be takeout and curbside pickup only on Christmas Day, from 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m.
The takeout entrance will be located at 4th and Wisconsin and the curbside pickup will take place on Wells Street.
Despite the event no longer allowing people to dine-in, volunteers are still working to make it as festive as possible.
"Still we tried to add as many festivities as we could, so Santa was still on site as well as the music was still going, just to bring in a little holiday cheer," said Sheree Dallas Branch of the Salvation Army. "And that will be the same this year."
It's all free and open to the public, no reservation needed.
Meals will be served on a first-come, first-serve basis while supplies last.
The to-go boxes are filled with turkey, ham, yams, mashed potatoes, cornbread, stuffing, green beans and dessert.
All volunteers and staff will be wearing masks and following CDC guidelines.
