Free Thanksgiving Resources in El Paso

I’m a believer in helping others when you can, and El Paso is blessed to have a lot of people who also share that belief.

I  was able to make this gentleman give a little whoop when I gave him a Sonic Chili dog since I had picked them up to give to the school staff and had bought extras since it was $1 Chili Dog Days at Sonic. It made me feel good to be able to brighten his day a bit and I know what Ruben from 4Tacos4Tacos4Tacos is talking about, the feeling of serving.

He doesn’t advertise it, but if you’re hungry and you don’t have money, he literally will feed you for free. He also spends his off hours driving and feeding the homeless in El Paso. From small individuals to larger entities, this community cares and steps up.

From the amazing work done at El Paso Fighting Hunger Food Banks where you can go to get food at their many pantry locations to the churches and YMCA and even a star like The Great Khalid. They’re there to help and make sure that our community doesn’t go hungry.

Here are evens ones giving away food and Thanksgiving meals.
