Free Thanksgiving Meals in Northwest Ohio in 2012. How to Find Them Elsewhere

We're already getting the question at the reference desk already--where can we find a meal for the Thanksgiving holiday?  The Catholic Diocese has done us the favor of pulling it together--a list for the northwest Ohio area. It's not just Catholic churches, but such places as the Cherry Street Mission, Toledo Rescue Mission, Augsburg Lutheran Church and more, as well as Norwalk, Fremont, Sandusky and Mansfield.  Here's another list of holiday meals from the Toledo Blade.

So how do you find them elsewhere?  I hate to beat a dead horse, but 211 is the answer, if it's in your area. You can call them, but if they have an online database, like Toledo's does,  you can search using the term, "Thanksgiving Meals."  It might not give the exact times, but it will give you a place to start contacting and searching.  Wishing best Thanksgiving to all of you.  And if you're having a tough one, maybe next year's holiday will be better.
