Cafe 180 in Englewood is hosting its annual complimentary Thanksgiving meal from noon to 2 p.m. Nov. 22. Everyone in the community is invited to enjoy a full Thanksgiving meal, catered by Footers Catering.

Since 2010, Cafe 180 has opened its doors on Thanksgiving, welcoming people from all walks of life.

“Our Thanksgiving dinner has become a beloved tradition in this community,” Sarah Lesyinski, executive director of CAFE 180, said in a news release. “It illustrates the spirit of what we do every day at CAFE 180: bringing people of all different backgrounds together around our belief that everyone deserves a great meal.”

The cafe at 3315 S. Broadway serves lunch Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Each week, between 30 percent and 40 percent of its customers volunteer for one hour in exchange for a healthy, fresh meal.

Paying customers are asked to make a donation for their lunch, with the average donation ranging from $10-$12. Since its inception in 2010, Cafe 180 has served more than 33,000 meals in exchange for volunteering. Learn more at cafe180.org.
