Free Community Meal to Serve 1,000 Southern Nevadans in Need

Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada will open its doors on Christmas, as more than 100 volunteers will serve a Christmas meal to more than 1,000 of Southern Nevada’s homeless and less fortunate. Executive Chef Jun Lao has planned a special holiday menu: honey pineapple glazed ham, scalloped potatoes, creamed corn, dinner roll with butter and maraschino cherry cake.

Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada’s St. Vincent Lied Dining Facility has been serving meals to the community’s homeless and vulnerable men, women and children since 1965.
