The Thanksgiving Dinner was a large meal, consisting of large amounts of the food stock, that took place on Thanksgiving in Gone. It was organized by Albert and took place in the Town Plaza. The dinner occurred only a few days after the very first battle of the FAYZ.
The dinner was seen as an important celebration, especially considering the circumstances of the FAYZ. Also, it was known that the food stocks were limited, but the dinner took place regardless. This is because it was decided that even though they were in a difficult situation they needed to remember their celebrations. It would help keep the residents of Perdido Beach happy and give them more courage to survive the FAYZ.
Sam was at one end of the table and Albert the other. Next to Sam sat Astrid on his left and Edilio on his right. Pete was being fed by Astrid. Dekka, Taylor, and Brianna were next to Edilio and Quinn was next to Pete. Cookie, Elwood and Dahra were sitting near Albert. Orc and Howard sat on the floor a little way off. The nursery ate on a different, smaller table, and various other kids were on a third.
