Our Annual Thanksgiving Banquet
A Special Annual Event for Austin’s Homeless Community
Join Our Annual Great Thanksgiving Banquet
Our Thanksgiving meal for the homeless community in Austin
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.
Each year, GTB is held at Church Under the Bridge the Sunday before Thanksgiving. Those who attend are offered a hot meal and fellowship with other attendees and volunteers at the Banquet.
Date & Time: Sunday before Thanksgiving from 9:00am to 2:30pm

Location: Under I-35 Between 7th & 8th Street

- 9:00am-10:30am: Volunteers needed to help set up and prepare for Service.
- 11am-12pm: Volunteers needed to sit with and visit with people in the service.
- 12pm-1:30pm: Serve food and tear down
- 1:30pm-2:30pm: 5-10 Volunteers come to Mission: Possible! Austin and help with dishes and clean crew
