Our 12th Annual Thanksgiving Celebration was a great success. We served almost 100 with a full Thanksgiving Feast and gave lots of folks in need food to take home.

A great amount of thanks to Jeff Murphy who helped cook and drives in from Napa on most Thanksgiving mornings to help DCM feed the needy in Davis. Thanks also to the wonderful volunteers who helped prepare food, cook, set up tables, serve food, and clean on both Wednesday and Thanksgiving Day. Many are individuals and families who have volunteered regularly for many years with us on Thanksgiving and we greatly appreciate their time, effort and dedication! To Donna and Bob for the great music accompanying our dinner. Lastly, thanks to St. Martins for the continued use of their church hall, kitchen and grounds.


DCM will be serving our Thanksgiving Day Celebration from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church, 640 Hawthorn Lane. This will be our 12th Annual Celebration of the Holiday. Jeff Murphy, formerly of Seasons Restaurant in Davis and Bistro Sabor in Napa, will be our guest chef. He has been cooking for us on Thanksgiving for many years. I can’t say enough of the help and dedication of our volunteers for Thanksgiving. Several families, student groups and individuals have volunteered for us continually for the past several years. They are an inspiration.

All are welcome to attend. We generally serve up to 120 individuals each year. The menu for 2015: turkey, stuffing, homemade cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, Jeff’s fabulous gravy, vegetables, blueberry crisp, pie, drinks, coffee and more.
