The meal will be available from noon to 3:00 p.m.

This will be the fourth year co-owners Heidi Wise and Rebecca Colvin have hosted a free Thanksgiving dinner.

“We just want everyone to know that they are absolutely welcome to eat with us,” Colvin told “No one should eat alone, and no one should not eat on Thanksgiving.”

According to Colvin, the store will not be open for sales on Thanksgiving Day; the door will be open beginning at noon for anyone who would like to join them for their special meal.

The meal is completely free, and while they aren’t requiring anything, for those who have asked, they have stated they will have a box for anyone who wants to bring a canned or boxed food item to donate to a good cause. Those items will then be donated to Community Services of Venango County, Inc.

Heath’s Market is located at 220 Bishop Avenue in Oil City.
