Every year since 1955, John Ascuaga’s Nugget has provided Thanksgiving and Christmas meals to an area shelter, and since 1961 the Nugget and St. Vincent’s have worked together to make sure that less fortunate residents of the Truckee Meadows enjoy a great meal. This year, for the 57th consecutive Thanksgiving, the Nugget will be providing more than 1,000 meals.
St. Vincent’s Dining Room, as part of Catholic Community Services of Northern Nevada, has welcomed the hungry with open arms for more than four decades. Today, the dining room serves many hundreds of meals every day. No preaching, no fee, no questions are asked of the hungry who go there. The menu changes daily, but not the mission: to provide a simple but hearty meal to sustain the body and warm the soul.
Thursday’s meal service will begin at 11:30 a.m. For more information, call 322-7073. The dining room is located at 325 Valley Road, just east of downtown Reno.
