Wayside Christian Mission’s annual Thanksgiving meals will be served out of the mission’s Hotel Louisville site.
Wayside has been running the building as a low-cost hotel for shelter residents for two weeks. On Thursday, the mission will host a free Thanksgiving lunch and dinner out of the building’s grand ballroom. Director Nina Moseley says the ballroom can hold more diners than either of its shelters, and she’s expecting a high turnout.
“I remember Thanksgiving, there were so many people standing in line waiting to eat and it was terrible and not much of a holiday,” she says.
The hotel’s economy rooms are full, as are both emergency shelters.
