Opelousas to hold its 5th annual community Thanksgiving dinner


Due to COVID-19 health-safety precautions, there will not be dine-in seating this year. Instead, families can drive by or walk up and receive to-go dinner plates. If any large housing facilities require a drop-off plate, please contact Toni Effingger at (337) 793-5738.

ST. LANDRY PARISH, La. (KLFY)- The Thanksgiving Committee will be hosting its 5th annual Thanksgiving dinner for St. Landry Parish residents who are not fortunate enough to have a Thanksgiving dinner or someone to share Thanksgiving Day with.
