The Salvation Army is expecting up to 500 people for its Thanksgiving dinner at the Colorado Convention Center on Thursday.

King Soopers/City Market has donated all the food, which was prepared by the Denver Sheriff Department and Salvation Army staff and volunteers. Some 200 volunteers will be on hand during the meal at the convention center at 700 14th St., Exhibit Hall B. Doors open at 11:00 a.m. and the event is expected to wrap up around 1 p.m.

“We welcome everyone and it is our great pleasure to provide them with a warm Thanksgiving dinner of turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, rolls and even pumpkin pie,” Major Mike Dickinson, the faith-based nonprofit’s divisional commander for the inter-mountain region, said in a statement.

In addition, the Salvation Army is preparing 1,500 Thanksgiving meal servings to be distributed around metro Denver. In all, including the convention center meals, King Soopers has donated 1,285 pounds of turkey, 100 pounds of mashed potatoes, 375 pumpkin pies and other items.
