BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Saint Vincent De Paul is gearing up for their annual Thanksgiving feast and like many things during the pandemic, it too will look a little different.

At St. Vincent De Paul, chairs are stacked, tables are bare and it’s definitely a different sight than year’s past. This year, people won’t be allowed inside during what is normally a sit down meal. Instead, guests will get double portions of everything in a to-go box.

Denise Terrance said, they had to switch everything up to keep everyone safe during the pandemic.

“It’s going to be quite different, but the more or less been adjusting to it having to come to the window since Covid started” said Terrance.

She said, they reduced the number of volunteers and the Raising Canes River Center will now serve as a drive up food give-a-way.

“So, that’s a big difference and we’re just hoping that they understand why we have to do it that way and I know that they do” said Terrance.
