Norma’s Cafe Continues Thanksgiving Tradition of Giving Back
Each Thanksgiving from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., the crew at Norma’s serves people who may not otherwise have enjoyed a Thanksgiving dinner or even a hot meal in a restaurant for a long time. The crowd starts lining up early at Norma’s original Oak Cliff location (1123 W. Davis St.). In past years the staff has served more than 8,000 free meals to individuals, families, homeless shelters and houses of worship. This year’s Thanksgiving dinner will consist of roasted turkey (possibly chicken due to turkey shortage) with cornbread stuffing, green beans and mashed potatoes, all topped with giblet gravy. And, of course, the meal wouldn’t be complete without a slice of pumpkin pie.
“Last year was my first year to experience this wonderful morning,” Norma’s director of operations, Kurt Metzger, said. “What I thought was going to be a function of my new job with Norma’s ended up being the greatest and most memorable Thanksgiving of my life. It is a mission of giving that we look forward to continuing every year.”
Norma’s Cafe, 1123 W. Davis St., 7 a.m. – 8 p.m. daily.
