Salvation Army

PORT ANGELES — The Salvation Army in Port Angeles will host a free community Thanksgiving meal — turkey with all the fixings — from noon to 2 p.m. today.

The indoor, sit-down meal will be at the Salvation Army church at 206 S. Peabody St.

Masks are required when people are not at their tables.

Proof of vaccination is not required.

Seating is arranged with five chairs per table to facilitate social distancing.

Shields will be up at the counters, said Major Barbra Wehnau.

The Salvation Army canceled the traditional meal the day before Thanksgiving in 2020 because of COVID-19 pandemic and has served its daily meals though the front door, but now “we’re trying to work back inside,” Wehnau said.

“Its’ been hard on people,” Wehnau said about providing meals for people who remain outdoors. “It’s cold, and it’s wet.”
