Around 70 turkeys, 800 slices of bread and lots of volunteers make up the Friendship Inn’s annual Thanksgiving meal.
With preparation well underway Sunday Organizer Sandra Stack told 650 CKOM they could still use donations of pie and sugar.
“We’re serving apple pie, pumpkin pie, any kind of pie,” said Stack
The feast is set for Monday from 11:45 a.m. until 1:30 p.m.
“We’re excited to welcome our community to come and join together and eat together as a family,” Stack said.
The communal dinner relies on volunteers and donations.
Dale Gruza decided to volunteer this year because he can’t spend the holiday with his family.
“We’re slicing the turkey up for tomorrow (Monday) and that’s what we’ve been doing so far. There’s a lot of turkeys cut up that is already cooked and their cooking more that we’ll be cutting later on,” said Gruza.
Organizers expect to serve more than 1,000 people during the lunch in Saskatoon.
