The team at Four Seasons Hotel Washington, DC proudly announces its 22nd annual “Thanksgiving on the Mayflower” feast for the city’s first responders who are working on Thanksgiving Day, November 25, 2021.

Washington, DC’s finest – those who work daily to protect and serve the local community – are invited to board the 53-foot (16 metre) Mayflower truck parked out front of Four Seasons Hotel Washington, DC – graciously donated by Hilldrup Mayflower, one of the nation’s leading moving and storage companies - on Thanksgiving Day between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm to pick up a gourmet Thanksgiving feast.

Prepared by talented Four Seasons chefs and served up by more than 30 passionate staff and community volunteers, including Regional Vice President and General Manager Marc Bromley and his executive team, it is a memorable day for all. Approximately 500 to-go meals will be provided; a small gesture of thanks to the heroes amongst us.

To celebrate the 22nd anniversary, Executive Chef Oliver Beckert and his talented culinary team have created an extraordinary menu including slow roasted turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, green beans, gravy and cranberry relish. The meal will be accompanied by more than 100 assorted pies from the Hotel’s pastry team led by Executive Pastry Chef Amanda Khan. “Our team couldn’t be more excited to prepare this meal for DC’s finest. It’s a true privilege,” states Beckert.

Four Seasons Regional Vice President and General Manager Marc Bromley echoes Beckert’s sentiments: “Our Thanksgiving feast is one of my favourite events of the year. We work closely all year long with the brave men and women who keep our city safe. Being able to personally thank them is what makes our Thanksgiving feast is so special,” he says.

“Hilldrup has a long and proud history serving the men and women who keep our country safe and secure – from active military to local first responders,” says John Seal, Senior Vice President, Operations – DMV, Hilldrup. “It is an honour to support our area’s public servants working this Thanksgiving through this annual event.”

To date, Four Seasons Hotel Washington, DC and its staff have served more than 7,850 Thanksgiving meals to public servants of the Washington, DC area.
