Alameda Meals on Wheels, Twin Towers United Methodist Church, and Saboor Zafari of Angela’s Restaurant announced this week they will co-sponsor a free dinner, open to all residents and families in Alameda in need of a hot meal on Christmas Day. 

The event will be held at the church, located at Central Avenue and Oak Street on Christmas Day, Friday, Dec. 25, between noon and 3 p.m. The sponsors anticipate serving 750 to 1,000 meals to adults and families with children.

Alameda Meals on Wheels is soliciting donations to cover the costs of the event. Funds raised will be used solely to pay for food, supplies and service items; everything else, including planning, food preparation, delivery, service, and cleanup will be donated by volunteers. 

Organizers are seeking contributions of any amount; all donations will be acknowledged with a receipt letter which may be used for tax-deduction purposes. 

Checks may be made payable to “AMOW Christmas Dinner” and mailed to Alameda Meals on Wheels, c/o David Stranz, 1338 Bay St., Alameda, CA 94501.

Alameda Meals on Wheels relies on the generosity of the Alameda community for all of its funding, and thanks any donors in advance for their support for this special Christmas dinner.
