Simon’s Soup Kitchen, located at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic church in Seaside Heights, will host its annual Thanksgiving Day dinner this year.

A traditional dinner of turkey, stuffing and all the fixings, along with plenty of pies, will greet guests to Simon’s Soup Kitchen’s annual event on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday Nov. 22.

“This is an opportunity for those who regularly come to our soup kitchen, as well as anyone else who would like to join us, to enjoy the food and fellowship that are so much a part of Thanksgiving,” said John Salemi, Sr. Executive Director.

This year’s special feast will be prepared and served by a dedicated group of over 25 volunteers who lend their time on Thanksgiving and throughout the year.

“For many who can’t afford to prepare a meal of their own, this is an opportunity to share a traditional dinner with others,” said Salemi. “Each year, those who join us express their gratitude for such a hearty feast prepared by our volunteers. For each of us, it is a reminder of the many things for which we can be thankful.”

The Thanksgiving dinner will be served in addition to the normal serving schedule of operating every Tuesday and Friday evening beginning at 5:30 p.m. from October through April at the Parish Center. Everyone in need of a hot meal is welcome, organizers said.

Thanksgiving dinner will be served from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day at the Parish Center of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church, 100 Grant Avenue, Seaside Heights. For more information on Simon’s Soup Kitchen visit or call 732-270-5941.
