The Santa Barbara Rescue Mission will hold its annual Thanksgiving Feast from 12 - 2 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 25, 2015. The Mission and a team of volunteers will be prepared to serve over 300 meals to men, women and children in need. 

The Thanksgiving dinner will include turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, pie and all the trimmings. The guests will be served restaurant style with their choice of white or dark meat. 

This festive celebration will be held in the Rescue Mission’s decorated dining hall located at 535 East Yanonali Street.

Last year, the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission provided hundreds of meals on Thanksgiving alone, with more than 12,000 meals served to the hungry and homeless through Christmas and New Year’s.

“The volunteers are so much a part of what is truly making a life-transforming impact for the hungry, the lonely and the lost from every walk of life, said Rolf Geyling, Rescue Mission president. "In many cases, the transformation begins with a meal.”

Rebecca Weber is the director of communications for the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
