Started in 2016 after Hurricane Matthew displaced many St. Augustine residents, the St. Augustine Community Thanksgiving Day Luncheon will once again welcome locals and visitors to the table.
The luncheon will be from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Nov. 23, Thanksgiving Day, in the downtown historic district. The meal will be served in a field by the Visitor’s Information Center on Orange Street.
The brainchild of Monica Davis, who volunteers at the St. Francis House, the second Thanksgiving luncheon will be held for many of the same reasons as the first.
“This year our community felt the wrath of another hurricane and many of our friends and neighbors have endured many hardships and losses,” Davis said in a press release.
Sponsored by many local businesses, the event is free and open to all.
”It is an opportunity for families, neighbors and strangers to get together and sit down for an afternoon of food, live music and companionship,” Davis said.
