Clear Path to host annual Thanksgiving Dinner for Veterans

Clear Path for Veterans will host its annual Thanksgiving Dinner free for Veterans and their immediate family members at Clear Path in Chittenango. There will be three one-hour meal services on Thanksgiving Day: 11-12, 12-1 and 1-2. We can accommodate up to 100 guests per seating, so reserve your preferred seating time at your earliest convenience. To make your reservation, visit or call our front desk at (315) 687-3300 and provide them with your first and last name, branch of service, and number in your party. (Please let them know if you will have guests in a wheelchair or children when making your reservation.)

Make your reservation by Nov. 16; after that date we will open any remaining seating to the general public for a donation of $20 per person.

Similar to our Wednesday Canteen, this Thanksgiving dinner serves as a platform for our military members and Veterans to visit, find comfort and enjoy a delicious meal.


Providing this complimentary meal to more than 300 Veterans and their family members is made possible through the generosity of several sponsors. By sponsoring a dish served at our Thanksgiving Dinner, you’re providing resources that enable our culinary team of Veterans to work with local farmers, many whom are Veteran-owned farms. It takes a community to put on a Thanksgiving Dinner of this size, and your sponsorship of a dish helps to underwrite the cost of the meal and will be displayed during the dinner on table tents at each food.
