Thanksgiving Day Dinner in Mandan

Posted:

Hundreds enjoy a traditional thanksgiving meal in Mandan. 

This is Aid Incorporated's 30th year hosting a Thanksgiving Dinner for the community.
85 volunteers are feeding more than 500 people today.
The event takes 3 months to plan and it takes 3 different locations to cook all of the turkeys.
The menu includes all the traditional thanksgiving day favorites -- turkey, cranberries, stuffing, corn, sweet potatoes and pie. 

 (Patti Regan / Aid Incorporated) "the need is massive. we started out feeding 150 to maybe 200 people. Every decade or so it has been increasing and increasing and now 30 years later we are doing 500 plus people. feeding at this dinner and a lot of people don't come here because they don't have food in their own. They come here for the fellowship to see people that they have known all their lives." 

All of the food is donated by Dan's Supermarket. 
First Lutheran Church has hosted the dinner for the past 30 years.
