The Salvation Army To Provide Christmas Day Dinner in Milwaukee
Meals will be takeout and curbside pickup only


MILWAUKEE - The Salvation Army is just a few days away from the 31st Christmas Family Feast. The annual event typically serves over 8,000 people a sit-down meal inside the Wisconsin Center. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it will look a little different this year.

Instead of the sit-down option, all the meals will be takeout and curbside pickup only from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Wisconsin Center, 400 W. Wisconsin Ave., in Milwaukee. Meals will be served on a first, come first serve basis while supplies last.

The event is free and open to the public with no reservations required.

“Christmas Family Feast is a Milwaukee tradition bringing together those in need and those of means for a day of food, fun and fellowship. While we can’t dine-in together this year, we still wanted to provide a meal for those who may need one,” said Major Steve Woodard, Coordinator for The Salvation Army of Milwaukee County.

Everyone that arrives will receive a to-go Styrofoam box filled with turkey, ham, yams, mashed potatoes, cornbread stuffing, green beans and dessert. All volunteers and staff will be wearing masks and all CDC guidelines will be observed.

Christmas Family Feast is sponsored by AT&T, Landmark Credit Union, We Energies, Hunger Task Force, The New Pitts Mortuary, Cedar Crest Ice Cream, Pick ‘n Save, Milwaukee County Transit System, and 98.3.
