Holiday Thanksgiving Meal Outreach
The week of Thanksgiving, we pack grocery bags full of the collected ingredients for hearty dinners. Each bag includes a fresh or frozen turkey, canned vegetables, potatoes, yams, gravy, rolls, marshmallows, sugar, and a pie. In the year of 2008, we distributed over 400 full holiday dinners to low-income families and group homes in our local community for both the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. In 2009 we gave away 650 dinners which is a 75% increase. For the past two years, we capped the program at 650 dinners. In 2010 and 2011, we distributed 650 full holiday dinners to low-income families and group homes for both the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
What if my family needs a turkey dinner ?
Then come to the Wednesday food distribution the last week of October, for the three consecutive weeks to sign up and get a ticket. Once you have a ticket come to the food pantry the day before Thanksgiving and get your dinner.
