Thanksgiving is a time to come together with friends and family to feast and give thanks for what we hold most dear. Sadly, for many in this country, that is an opportunity that isn’t readily available due to homelessness. In that spirit, Thanksgiving is also a time to come together to support those who are less fortunate making it truly a season of giving. More than a fancy meal, Thanksgiving is a time to give back to our communities.
In keeping with their long-standing tradition of giving back, Disney Parks will be doing their part. On Thanksgiving, Chef Lenny DeGeorge (culinary director at Disney’s Animal Kingdom) together with his culinary team will prepare the traditional Thanksgiving feast and a team of VoluntEARS will serve the meal to more than 700 residents at the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida.
Disney’s relationship with the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida is not a new one. In fact, Walt Disney Worlds food and beverage teams have been serving meals at the Coalition twice a month for the last 20 years. The belief in a strong community is a central value of the Walt Disney Company and they continually show this by their VoluntEARS work and charitable donations in local communities nationwide.
In honor of the holiday and the season of giving, Disney Kitchens has shared one of its favorite holiday recipes – a Sweet Potato Casserole – with us. We know what we will be bringing to our family potluck this year!
