On Thanksgiving Eve, events downtown and in Amherst offer ways to feed yourself and raise money to feed others.
At Larkin Square, a Thanksgiving Eve food truck rodeo featuring Buffalo’s newest food truck will harness the power of hunger to try filling a truck with donations to the Salvation Army.
The Flaming Fish, specializing in fried fish and all the fixings, will join 30 food trucks for one last outdoor buffet. At the event, 5 to 8 p.m., volunteers will solicit donations of food and winter clothing. So dress for the weather, and bring something extra.
Across the street, Hydraulic Hearth, one of the city’s newest restaurants, will be open, too.
On Transit Road in Amherst, you can check out Tandoori’s new look and try a free buffet dinner on Thanksgiving Eve.
The restaurant has renovated its interior, and Tandoori’s owner Rita Sabharwal wants regulars, neighbors and others to check it out. A $5 donation to the Food Bank of Western New York will be solicited, but if you don’t have it, you can still eat.
“This is our humble way of saying thank you to our cherished community for years of loyal patronage” Sabharwal said. “We look forward to making this a yearly tradition where we celebrate the goodness of the human spirit and come together to help members of our community most in need.”
That’s from 5 to 8 p.m. Nov. 26, at 7740 Transit Road, Amherst.
