The dinner will be prepared under the direction of The Westin Denver Downtown Executive Chef Jean-Luc Voegele and Samaritan House Executive Chef Dave Uelze, with help from volunteer associates from the Sheraton and Westin hotels. 

They will be drawing from what they describe as a SuperFoods menu which will include traditional Thanksgiving favorites such as turkey, walnuts, broccoli, apples and beans as well as a SuperFood secret - dark chocolate.

Located in downtown Denver, the Samaritan House was built in 1986 and specifically designed and constructed for the homeless. It can accommodate over 350 men, women and children each night.

There are separate facilities for single men, single women and families with children. Residents receive a bed, food, clothing and various services on site, including case management, medical care, and referrals for employment and housing, social service assistance and educational opportunities.

There is an active children's program and an age-appropriate program for teens. Volunteers are always needed and welcomed. For more information or to volunteer, call (303) 294-0241.
