Havasu Community Feeding Families For Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving day is just around the corner and many are doing last minute grocery runs for their holiday gatherings but some families this year are struggling more than ever, so some Lake Havasu City restaurants and organizations are stepping up to help.

Every year, the local food bank gives away 500 Thanksgiving dinners to local families and individuals around the Thanksgiving holiday.  Recently, the food bank has been struggling with donations because of the rise of costs going up everywhere. Keeping pantries full before the holiday has been a challenge. So far, they have 200 dinners to give away and are still accepting food donations to reach their 500 dinner goal.

Other restaurants, businesses and organizations also helping local families with free dinners are listed below.

ChaBones Steakhouse and APX West:
