When: Saturday, December 25, 2021. Doors open at 9:30 a.m., offering free haircuts, a prayer room, music, beverages, games and gifts (while supplies last).

Where: Phoenix Convention Center in Downtown Phoenix, located at 100 N. 3rd St., in the South Building (southeast corner of E. Washington St. and 3rd St.).

What: We are excited to again offer our traditional sit-down congregate meal inside the building.

Meal service will begin at 11:30 a.m. and will be served until food runs out or until 1 p.m., when the doors to the building will close.

There will be a contactless, drive-thru meal pickup option on the east side of the Convention Center’s South Building from 10:30 a.m. to noon. To get to the area, travel east on E. Jefferson St. east and turn north on S. 5th St. No drive-thru meals will be provided before 10:30 a.m., so we ask that you please do not come to the drive-thru area early; that will help traffic flow more smoothly.

Who: This event is open to the public and people of all ages. No advance signup or registration is required. Come enjoy fellowship, food and fun!

Safety: Face coverings will be required of anyone inside the Convention Center; they will be provided for anyone without. Social distancing will be observed, and hand sanitizing stations will be placed throughout the building.

Cost: FREE! Dinner is compliments of The Salvation Army and our valued community partners.


Parking: Please keep in mind that parking meters and most parking garages/lots are NOT free on Christmas Day in downtown Phoenix. The East Garage, on the corner of E. Jefferson St. and S. 5th St., and the garage at the corner of E. Washington St. and S. 7th St. (enter from E. Washington St.) are both available for free parking for this event only.


Volunteers: Volunteers are needed to help in a variety of ways to make this Christmas meal memorable for many. We need help with prepping and packing meals; decorating, setup, cleanup, greeting guests, security, serving the meal to guests, delivering meals to the homebound, and more. 


Together, we will help ensure no one in the Valley goes hungry on Christmas!
