Murrieta: The 10th Annual “Share the Harvest” Thanksgiving Dinner at Murrieta Mesa is Saturday, November 17th

The Feast is Hosted by Murrieta Mesa High School & the Murrieta Rotary on Saturday, November 17th … from Noon until 5:00

On Saturday November 17th from noon until 5:00 pm. Murrieta Mesa High School, the Interact Club and Murrieta Rotary will host their 10th annual “Share the Harvest” Thanksgiving Dinner and Fall Festival at Murrieta Mesa High School located at 24801 Monroe Avenue in Murrieta.




This event is free and open to the community. It is an opportunity for people of all backgrounds and economic levels to share a great meal together, enjoy entertainment provided by talented student dance groups and musicians, and for children to take part in activities, games, and crafts at the Fall Festival.

Last year approximately 2,000 people were fed at the event and an additional 250 people took home complete Thanksgiving dinner boxes. In addition the school donated about 500 prepared meals to local entities.

A traditional Thanksgiving dinner will be served with turkey and stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes, drinks, and pies for dessert. In addition, a limited number of Thanksgiving meal boxes will be distributed for families to take home. There is a limit to one per household.



The school is accepting donations of canned green beans, corn, cranberry sauce, turkey gravy, sweet potatoes, instant mashed potatoes, instant turkey stuffing, frozen pies and turkeys. All donations may be dropped off at the high school office. Last year the school donated 3,000 pounds of non-perishable food items to local food pantries and again this year any donated food not used for the Thanksgiving meal will be donated to local food pantries.

The school is also accepting cash donations. For more information, or to donate to the food drive, contact the school at (951) 677-0568.
