The legendary Kirk Douglas is making Thanksgiving a little brighter for the homeless when he hosts the annual holiday meal with a little help from his wife and volunteers.
The 75th annual event will be served at the Los Angeles Mission on Nov. 23 for men, women and children who don’t have the luxury of enjoying a traditional Thanksgiving.
This will be the seventh year Douglas and his wife Anne, for whom the Anne Douglas Center for Women at the Mission is named for, have hosted the dinner.
King BBQ Chef Roy Choi, known for the Kogi BBQ Truck and voted ‘Best New Chef’ by Food & Wine in 2010, will prepare the food, along with cooking demonstrations on the street.
The Thanksgiving meal is sponsored by Wells Fargo Bank, which will deliver donations by way of its iconic stagecoach. Foot care and exams will also be provided by the Los Angeles Christian Health Centers.
