BOZEMAN, Mont. – Multiple restaurants are serving the community free turkey dinners for Thanksgiving.

On Wednesday at 10:30 a.m., It’s Greek to Me opened its doors to serve turkey, cranberries, ham and many other holiday favorites.

Owner Evelyn Littlefield said It’s Greek to Me didn’t serve any Greek food for the day but instead offered anyone who walked through the door a turkey dinner for free. This was the second year in a row the restaurant held the event.

“My heart just, it just feels like it is ready to overflow,” said Littlefied. “It just is, it makes me so happy to see people come and visit and everybody that comes in, we all just talk like a big family gathering no matter who comes in.”

The Bozeman Salvation Army will be taking over pay-what-you-can restaurant Fork & Spoon to cook a full traditional meal on Thanksgiving Day from 1-3 p.m. Donations are welcome but not required. The restaurant just asks that you give what you can to help support the local Salvation Army.

“Holidays for anybody can be a really stressful time,” said Fork & Spoon Employee Leah Smutko. “Whether you get along with your family or not, really, having a place to go is a really comforting feeling and being able to just sit down and have a meal with lots of other people around can be a sense of normalcy.”

Midtown Tavern and The Scoop Bar will also be hosting Thanksgiving events.
