36th Annual Holiday Meal

December 24 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for the Davis Food Co-op’s Annual Holiday Meal and help support if you are able!

About this event

The Davis Food Co-op is proud to announce that this year we will celebrate the 36th anniversary of our Annual Holiday Meal, to be held Friday, December 24th. With the continued uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic impacting our planning process , we have made the decision to duplicate last year’s event and make this a takeout only meal. One thing that will not change, however, is the strength and ability of our community to pull together to provide a warm meal on Christmas Eve for all to enjoy.

This free and festive dinner for the entire community is a remarkable Davis tradition and has become an important part of the holiday celebrations of local people from all walks of life. Although this year’s meal will look different, we are still anticipating feeding anywhere from 400 to 700 people.

We invite you to join us for this meal and ask that you help with a donation or by volunteering if you are able to so that we can continue this wonderful Davis tradition.

To volunteer, visit our signup page here

To donate a dessert, visit the Customer Service Desk and sign up in our Holiday Meal binder

We are also accepting monetary donations. These donations will help us to serve hundreds of people a warm meal this Christmas Eve. As a donor, your name will be listed in our event advertising and on displays at the meal itself. To make a donation, please click the ‘Tickets’ button on our Eventbrite page here and choose the amount that you would like to donate. Contributions at all levels are welcomed, appreciated, and needed.

Lastly, starting on December 10, we will be accepting clothing donations in store to hand out at the event.

This event succeeds only because a broad spectrum of people support it. We look forward to providing a meal that reaches even more people and to working with the generous members of the Davis community in keeping this wonderful tradition alive!
