Kitchen-Free Thanksgiving in Southern Indiana

Thanksgiving is looking different this year for families across the country. Many are opting out of large gatherings because of covid-19. That means fewer people to help with the turkey and those famous Thanksgiving side dishes. If you don’t want to spend the whole day in the kitchen, why not leave the cooking to southern Indiana’s chefs? They can help you prepare a Thanksgiving feast that will make you feel at home, and grateful.

Check out these options for carryout Thanksgiving meals, SoIN style!
