Community Thanksgiving Dinner

Every year on Thanksgiving Day at 1:00pm United Parish in Brookline hosts a full sit-down Thanksgiving meal for up to 175 people.  The meal and service are all provided by volunteers in the church and in the community, and some food local organizations.  The meal is offered free of charge. 

The church office does ask for an RSVP to give those who work tirelessly on this project sufficient information about the number of people to expect for the meal.  The church office is receiving RSVP's now.  You can call 617-277-6860 x7 or email to RSVP or volunteer to help out that day.

Sign up to volunteer at the Community Thanksgiving Dinner
Posted: Oct 9 2019 - 2:20pm

It’s time to sign up for the annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner that we host on Thanksgiving Day. We extend a community-wide invitation to this annual dinner, which brings in around 175 people every year. For many, this is their only chance at a family-style traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Therefore, we need many volunteers and lots of food donations. We have opportunities for people to donate food, flowers, kitchen items, and their time helping with set-up, cooking, and clean-up.

To volunteer, sign up here, or contact the coordinators at, or call 617-277-6860 x7.
