Café Gratitude in Venice is serving up free vegan meals on Thanksgiving.
Café Gratitude, renowned for its organic vegan cuisine, will express their gratitude for patrons of the Venice location with a free dinner this Thanksgiving. The vegan meal will include Butternut Squash & Sage Lentil Loaf, Garlic Mashed Potatoes with Mushroom Gravy, Raw Stuffing, Seasonal Roasted Vegetables, Salad with Persimmons, a refreshing Seasonal Spritzer, and a sweet finish of pumpkin pie. Arrive early, as reservations won’t be taken for this meal, which will be served either until 3pm or until the food runs out. Helping out local communities is a tradition at Bay Area-based Café Gratitude – they generally serve up 400 to 600 gratis Thanksgiving meals, and on a daily basis offer their tasty Grateful Bowl (shredded kale, brown rice or quinoa, black beans, and garlic-tahini sauce) for a donation of $3 or more, though its suggested value is $7.
