Free Christmas meals being served across Minn., N.D.
Everybody deserves two things during Christmastime: 1. To be loved. 2. A hot, home-cooked meal.
The Salvation Army has both things covered for you. This week, our loving staff members and volunteers will serve ham, mashed potatoes, and other yummy holiday favorites at select locations throughout Minnesota and North Dakota.
All of these meals are free and open to the public.
“Come one, come all,” said Lt. Col. Lonneal Richardson, leader of The Salvation Army Northern Division. “We are privileged to serve hot Christmas meals in honor of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We thank the donors and volunteers who make our work possible during the Christmas season and throughout the year.”
