FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

THE SALVATION ARMY TO HOST CHRISTMAS FAMILY FEAST

WAUWATOSA, WI. — (December 10, 2013) The Salvation Army of Milwaukee County will host the annual Christmas Family Feast at the Wisconsin Center District, 400 W. Wisconsin Avenue from 11:00 to 2:30 p.m. on Christmas Day. A tradition in Milwaukee for 24 years, the Christmas Family Feast is free and open to the entire community.

“What started as a dinner to feed those in need has evolved into an important holiday event where a great meal serves as the focal point for a wonderful day of fellowship, fun and community,” said Major Dan Jennings, Salvation Army Divisional Commander for Wisconsin & Upper Michigan.

“We’re preparing to feed 8,000 to 10,000 people on Christmas Day, this wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of this year’s sponsors. The Christmas Family Feast is the largest feeding program hosted by The Salvation Army in the country,” said Major Jennings.

The 24th Annual Christmas Family Feast is sponsored by the Forest County Potawatomi Foundation, Brewers Community Foundation, Wisconsin Energy Foundation, Wells Fargo, AT&T, Universal Family of Schools, Wisconsin Center District, Levy Restaurants, Hunger Task Force, Milwaukee County Transit System, Cedar Crest Ice Cream, Brownberry Bread, Molina Healthcare, Milwaukee Times, Milwaukee Courier, Milwaukee Community Journal, WNOV 860 AM, WJMR 98.3 FM, Feeding America, the Spice House, Roundy's Supermarkets and the Hyatt.

This year’s meal will consist of ham, turkey and dressing, mashed potatoes, yams, green beans, dinner rolls, an assortment of desserts and beverages.

Guests will receive complimentary gifts while supplies last.
