Every year, Meals on Wheels Spokane (MOW) teams up with Feed Thy Neighbor to make sure people in need and local seniors have a happy holiday. Not only do volunteers prepare meals for delivery to seniors, but they also cook an early dinner for about 600 people who show up to the MOW downtown location.

This year marks the partnership’s 20 th year.

That meal begins at 11:30 a.m. and runs through 2 p.m. The address is 1222 W 2nd Ave. Anyone in need can attend. It is free.

Here is a full list of free Thanksgiving meals in the Spokane area.
