“We know that a lot of the participants, as much as anything, want to feel a part of the holiday,” Peckham said.
He’s seen folks come through the Nugget who don’t have anyone to spend the holidays with. Some of them put money toward their meal, explaining that they’re not in need of a free meal, but want company and opportunity to socialize.“The event is an annual tradition that feeds the community and feeds many residents of Carson City including seniors and veterans,” said Dean DiLullo, the owner of the Carson Nugget who has been a part of the Thanksgiving feast for many years. This event is made possible by F.I.S.H. in collaboration with the Carson Nugget, A Catered Affaire Busboy Mobile Cuisine, and Nevada Nosh.
The community Thanksgiving celebration offers just that, food and friends.
The free meal will go from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Grand Ballroom of the Nugget on 507 N. Carson St.
