For the past five decades, the kitchen staff of the Nugget Casino has taken over the St. Vincent’s Dining Room and provided free meals to hungry men, women and children every Christmas and Thanksgiving.
“It’s a really special day at our Dining Room,” says Peter Vogel, CEO of Catholic Charities & the St. Vincent’s Programs. “The Nugget provides a delicious, hearty meal, and our volunteers provide warmth and smiles to help bring Christmas cheer to families in need. We are so grateful for all of the people who come out to help make this possible.”
On Friday, December 25th, food will be served at St. Vincent’s Dining Room starting at 11:30 a.m. For people looking for a free hot meal, there are no questions asked and no requirements.
The St. Vincent’s Dining Room serves all people, regardless of race, religion or background, in hopes that by providing the most basic needs, such as food, will help people begin the journey toward permanent relief from poverty.
The St. Vincent’s Dining Room has welcomed the hungry with open arms for decades. The Dining Room serves an average of about 550 free meals per day, six days a week, year-round and is located at 325 Valley Road, Reno.
