 The Berkshire Food Project will host its annual free Thanksgiving meal for the community with two seatings: from 1 to 2 p.m. and 4 to 6 p.m. There are no reservations; meals are served on a first come, first serve basis. This is a traditional holiday meal including turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy and all the side dishes. The Berkshire Food Project is located inside the First Congregational Church in downtown North Adams; enter from Main Street or Summer Street between Ashland and Church Streets. For those wishing to attend from Williamstown, free rides are available thanks to a grant from the Fund for Williamstown of the Berkshire Taconic Foundation. The round-trip transportation is free but must be reserved in advance; call 413-458-9831.

 All Saints Berkshire Episcopal Church in North Adams will be delivering meals to local seniors, 60 and older, who are alone on Thanksgiving and have no way of having a traditional Thanksgiving meal. The program is provided and organized by local volunteers from the Northern Berkshire community and by All Saints Weekend Meal Ministry.  The meal will be a traditional meal of turkey, stuffing, vegetable, gravy, cranberry sauce roll and pumpkin pie. All Saints will be delivering the meals to seniors that live in North Adams, Adams, Cheshire, Clarksburg, Florida Mountain, and Williamstown between 11 a.m. and noon. This is a free meal and reservations for a meal is required. All seniors who wish to receive a meal must make a reservation by calling 413-664-9656. Volunteers are also sought to deliver the meals on Thanksgiving Day.
