The Great Thanksgiving Banquet is a thanksgiving meal for the homeless community. GTB is held annually at Church Under the Bridge the Sunday before Thanksgiving. Church Under the Bridge is located under the I-35 bridge between 7th & 8th Streets. Those who attend are offered a hot meal, but, more importantly, are offered offered fellowship with other attendees and those who came to serve at the Banquet. Holidays can be a lonely time for those living on the streets. Often times, our street friends are not in contact with loved ones. This becomes especially apparent during the holiday season. Our goal is to offer hope, compassion and a hot meal to those who attend the Great Thanksgiving Banquet.
