The Feast of Giving is a continuation of the efforts of local businessman Arthur Beerman, one of the founders of Elder-Beerman. In 1969, after receiving hundreds of cards and and visitors from the Dayton community at his hospital bed, Beerman decided to hold a free Thanksgiving meal to thank the community for their outpouring. From there, the event was put on for 40 more years through the Beerman Foundation until it was discontinued. At this time, it was one of the biggest charitable dinner functions in the country.
Since 2008, various sponsors have worked hard to continue the charitable efforts of Beerman, and thus, the Feast of Giving remains one of the largest community events in Dayton.
