With the help of about 40 volunteers, Thai Siam served up 1,100 free meals on Christmas day for those in need.
“We make 28 turkeys at the restaurant and about six more were brought in Christmas morning, we also make 600 servings of meatloaf on Christmas eve,” owner Ott Jaichalernsook says. “On top of that, 50 gallons of gravy, 30 big pumpkin pies, 100 turkey sandwiches, 100 meatloaf sandwiches, 300 packages of cookies, and lots of fresh homemade mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, stuffing, steamed vegetable, dinner rolls, tea, coffee, soda, apple and orange juice.”
This is the 24th year that Thai Siam has been serving Christmas meals to those who wouldn’t otherwise have a hot meal. (Photos courtesy Thai Siam. Disclosure: Thai Siam is a sponsor of MyBallard.)
