The KIA Thanksgiving Luncheon serves and delivers hundreds of turkey meals on Thanksgiving Day each year. The annual luncheon, held in the All Saints' Gym, is preceded by an interfaith service in the church, led by most of the priests from participating churches that include All Saints' Episcopal Church, St. Catherine's Catholic Church, Kapa'a Hongwanji Mission, Kapa'a Seventh Day Adventist Church, Kapa'a United Church of Christ.
Each year, funds are raised to purchase the food and supplies, and Mark Oyama and his crew from Contemporary Flavors donate their time to prepare and plate the food. Home deliveries to the elderly and shut-ins are available with advance notice, and are dispatched between 11:00 am - 12:00 noon.
All the churches take part in the organization and implementation of this event which makes set-up and breakdown quick and easy. The youth from the different churches also play a role, serving guests food and beverages and bussing tables. Home-style entertainment takes place throughout the lunch.
It's been a wonderful collaboration that the community has embraced, as shown in the growing numbers each year. Be sure to join the Kapa'a Community 'Ohana for a wonderful food & fellowship!
