The Society of St. Vincent de Paul will officially kick off Thanksgiving activities on Wednesday with the Tenth Annual Community Turkey Carving Contest at the St. Vincent de Paul Shelter in Baton Rouge.

On Thanksgiving Day, St. Vincent de Paul volunteers will serve dinner to hundreds of people at two locations in Baton Rouge.

“Many of them are living in homes where people have to skip meals or eat less to make ends meet. Some of them have no homes. But on this day, everyone will have a warm place to go and plenty to eat,” the Society of St. Vincent de Paul said in a press release.

The meals will be served at 220 St. Vincent de Paul Place, and the Raising Cane’s River Center.

Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome, District Attorney Hillar Moore, Major Reginald Brown, Councilwoman Tara Wicker, and many others will be participating in the turkey carving contest on Wednesday.
