Reno/Sparks, Nev. – The chefs at John Ascuaga’s Nugget are preparing for another busy holiday season. Not just for guests at the Nugget, but also for about 1,300 guests at St. Vincent’s Dining Room on Thanksgiving Day!
Every year since 1955, John Ascuaga’s Nugget has provided free Thanksgiving and Christmas meals to an area shelter, and since 1961 the Nugget and St. Vincent’s have worked diligently to make sure that less fortunate folks enjoy a great meal. This year, for the 58th consecutive Thanksgiving, the Nugget will be providing meals starting at 11:30 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day.
The food served at St. Vincent’s is the same high-quality food served to casino guests at the Thanksgiving Buffet at John Ascuaga’s Nugget Casino Resort.
St. Vincent’s Dining Room, as part of Catholic Community Services of Northern Nevada, has welcomed the hungry with open arms for decades. The Dining Room serves many hundreds of meals every day. No preaching, no fee, no questions are asked of the hungry who go there. The menu changes daily, but not the mission: to provide a simple but hearty meal to sustain the body and warm the soul. For details, call 775-322-7073. The dining room is located at 325 Valley Rd., just east of downtown Reno.
