Niagara County Legislator Owen Steed will host his annual Thanksgiving dinner for local families on Monday, Nov. 22. Rather than a sit-down dinner, residents will pick up meals to take home and enjoy. Steed said the format change was primarily based on the rise in COVID-19 cases.
“We are always happy to provide families with a great Thanksgiving dinner that includes turkey, mashed potatoes, corn, beans and so on,” Steed said. “But we also want to keep everyone safe as we enter the holiday season, so it seemed best to do this year’s dinner as takeout.”
The event will be held from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 22, at the Doris W. Jones Family Resource Building, 3001 Ninth St., Niagara Falls. All are welcome, but masks are required for entry.
“I want to thank the Niagara Falls Police Department, the Niagara Falls Housing Authority, Assemblyman Angelo Morinello, Electric City Lodge and NCCC for sponsoring our Thanksgiving event,” Steed said. “Although I wish we were all enjoying this meal together, I still happy we can provide a great dinner to our community members.”
