Free Dinners Being Served In Champaign & Urbana On Thanksgiving

The Champaign City Building figures prominently in this view of downtown Champaign, as seen from University Avenue.

Everyone’s invited to community Thanksgiving dinners being held Thursday, at midday in Champaign and during the evening in Urbana.

The Champaign dinner will be served from 11:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. at the Salvation Army Red Shield Center and Thrift Store, on North Market Street, across from Market Place Mall. The local Lone Star Masonic Lodge and Berean Covenant Church are putting on the dinner. Free bus transportation will be provided, with pick-ups at 11, 12 and 1, from bus stops at the Illinois Terminal building in downtown Champaign and the Sav-A-Lot store in downtown Urbana.

Later in the day, the Urbana High School Student Senate will serve their 49th annual Thanksgiving Dinner, at the Urbana High School cafeteria, from 5:00-7:00 p.m.

Both dinners are free, and advance registration is NOT required.
