Thanksgiving delivered

Good morning everybody;

Very new at this site and I need some help my daughter is going to school in Philadelphia
and will not be coming home for Thanksgiving.What I need is some info on getting
Thanksgiving dinner delivered to her apartment or someplace where she can pick it up.

Thanks in advance

  1. If she has a bunch of friends, Percy St BBQ usually sells an entire cooked turkey with all the sides. If you just want a meal for one, your best bet might be to send her to a diner for takeout. What part of the city is she in?

      Whole Foods does entire meals for pick up.

    2. Does she have a car? What part of Philadelphia does she live in?

      1. Both The Plough & The Stars (2nd & Chestnut) and McCormick and Schmidt's (Broad & Market) do reasonably-priced traditional Thanksgiving dinners.

        Either would have pick up available. Don't see the special menus up on either site yet.

        1. Hi
          Thanks for the reply's to answers a few questions She does not have a car leaves in zip code 19103 near Race & 21st. I think the parade might be a problem with delivery but she has no problem getting around so pick up will be fine.

            Race and 21st is a very short walk to Whole Foods Callowhill (like 2 or 3 blocks away). I have had their Thanksgiving meals for the last 5 years or so and been very happy.
            As the holiday gets closer I am sure that they will update their website with meal possibilities.
