The City of Thomasville, in partnership with local organizations, will host a Feeding the Community event on Thursday, May 25 from 11 am – 2 pm to assist anyone in the community in need of a meal.
The City’s Community Outreach Team hosts meal distribution events to build and create partnerships with other organizations while serving the community.
“We have a growing list of community partners joining us to try and make a small difference in our community,” noted Community Outreach and Recruitment Manager Ricky Zambrano. “We all have the same goal in mind to not only work together to provide a free meal but build unity within our community while serving our community.”
