Due to COVID-19, this year’s event will be drive-through and motel delivery only.


In 2008, the ministry of Jesus Was Homeless began with a Thanksgiving Day dinner aimed at serving the homeless, hurting and hopeless in Branson. Since then, it has been an annual tradition that continues to bring joy to both the served and those who provide the service.

The annual Thanksgiving Day dinner is an enormous event made possible by generous donors and volunteers. We need your help to continue this great tradition! Please consider how you might partner with us in this year’s event. Explore the links below to learn more.


Elevate Branson has been chosen as the recipient for the Virtual Branson Turkey Trot!
