Thanksgiving Day Buffet

Thanksgiving Buffet Table at the DECC, sponsored by St. Scholastica

2020 Twin Ports Regional Event

Sadly, we cannot provide the community Thanksgiving buffet as we have in the past, due to COVID-19. In an effort to keep our community safe during this difficult time, we've had to reimagine the traditional Thanksgiving meal provided to so many of our community members. Although we're saddened that we won't be coming together at the DECC this year, we remain hopeful that we will return to the traditional event as soon as safely possible.

We know that the need for access to food is increasing for many in our region who may be facing a loss of income due to the pandemic. Therefore, we are focusing on helping those who are most in need.

If you need a home-delivered meal on Thanksgiving and are home-bound, please fill out the link below.

We are able to serve those who live in the following areas:

  • Duluth, MN
  • Superior, WI
  • Proctor, MN
  • Hermantown, MN
  • Esko, MN
  • Cloquet, MN
  • Two Harbors, MN

Delivered meals for the home-bound

We're sorry, but the deadline has passed to order a home-bound meal delivery. Our reservation requests exceeded the amounts of food we have available.

Families in need

We're sorry, but the deadline has passed to order a Family Meal Kit and our reservation requests exceeded the amounts of kits we have available to us.

Sponsor a family in need

Our community is known for coming together and helping those in need. We are grateful for the continued support of area leaders and our many sponsors who are making it possible for us to provide meals under these unique circumstances. Although volunteer opportunities are very limited this year, there is another way you can lend support. A $40 contribution* to the Twin Ports Thanksgiving Day Buffet sponsors a family in need.


*Sponsors a family meal kit that feeds 4-6 people.


Since our 2020 event is being scaled back and we are not holding a traditional buffet, our volunteer needs are limited. To be considered for a position, please fill out the volunteer waiting list form.
