Event Details

The 36th Annual Free Christmas Dinner will be held at the Monterey County Fairgrounds on Christmas Day, Saturday, December 25, 2021.

Because of COVID, we will not be serving dinner in the Monterey Room, but instead we will be handing out complete, hot holiday meals for people to eat at home. There will be some free clothing and other items available and Santa Claus will make a guest appearance with lots of holiday cheer.

Volunteers are now needed to help prepare and distribute the dinners.   Anyone who would like to volunteer should call Tiffany at 831-233-2780, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.

For clothing donations, contact Trish at 831-238-1460. To donate a ham, turkey or cash, please call Rich at 831-757-5709.
This special annual dinner is hosted by the Community Holiday Dinner Committee working in conjunction with the Food Bank for Monterey County.
This annual dinner is free and everyone is invited to share the spirit of the holidays!



(Saturday) 8:00 am - 7:00 pm
