ABOUT THE FEAST

Five years ago, a handful of people with a dream came together to host the first annual Warrior Feast. The mission of The Feast is simple, to provide a family-style Thanksgiving dinner as a way of bringing our military community together as a family. This year, year six, will be no different. Complete with turkey and dressing, door prizes, great friends, fun and games, and more, this event is the flagship event of the Warrior Network. Honestly, that first Feast was where all of this "Warrior Network" talk came from and began!


This is an event where the Shreveport/Bossier community come together to serve and honor our military community.


MENU FOR THE EVENING:

We will serve a traditional Thanksgiving style dinner including the following:

MAIN COURSE
Smoked Turkey Breast
Honey Baked Ham
Cornbread Dressing

    #TWNGIVESBACK

    As with all of our events, we have an opportunity to give back and invest in our community.


    This year, we are asking our Warriors and Volunteers to help us collect food items for children at two of our local schools as we kick off one of our latest initiatives. Check back soon for the official announcement of this initiative, plus how The Feast will help start it all. 


    You do not have to participate in this to attend or volunteer. 








    HELP US MAKE IT HAPPEN!

    THE FEAST EXPERIENCE

    TEAM!

    VOLUNTEER REGISTRATION FOR THE FEAST IS NOW OPEN. Want to help us greet, serve, set up, work the parking lot, or help with check-in? Then we need you!


    Volunteer opportunities are for our community and veteran friends. Those currently serving in the military are asked not to volunteer, rather, we want you to attend and enjoy the Feast.

    • GREET

      From the Parking Garage to inside the Main Hall, our Greeters serve by making our Warriors welcome to the Feast. High fives, smiling faces, "welcome to the Feast", and a few of our TWN arm bands have been known to be staples of our Greeters. (REPORT TIME: 4:00pm, Sunday, November 24)

    • SERVE

      Our Servers make sure our Warriors have everything they need throughout the event. Servers take care of the tables.
