SOUTHWICK – The Southwick Civic Fund’s annual Thanksgiving for All dinner will continue this year, COVID style.

Instead of indoor seating at Moolicious Farm, all meals will be delivered or picked up curbside this year.

Organizer Elizabeth Deedy said the meals are offered free to residents of OSuthwick, Tolland and Granville.

Reservations are being taken now by calling 413-569-1700.

Moolicious farm owner Joseph Deedy said he and members of the Southwick Civic Fund wanted to keep the Thanksgiving dinner tradition intact and noted that while right now they are on par with past numbers, he expects there could be more need this year.

“We have 150 people signed up so far, but will be cooking for at least 200,” he said. “We ask that people register by Nov. 25.”

Deedy recently enclosed the side porch at Moolicious, which will allow volunteers to socially distance while preparing meals this year.

Donations for Thanksgiving are being accepted at Moolicious. The following items are needed: Turkeys, stuffing, onions, celery, cranberry sauce, gravy, potatoes, butter and sour cream.

Donations can be dropped off at Moolicious during open hours, Tuesday-Friday from 3-8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 12-8 p.m.

Deedy said unfortunately, the pies normally baked for Thanksgiving in conjunction with Southwick Regional School could not be made. However, Deedy said everyone who receives a Thanksgiving meal will get a dessert.

Volunteers to deliver meals are needed. Anyone able to give an hour of time starting at 10:30 a.m. on Thanksgiving to deliver meals should call Moolicious.
