Special Thanksgiving Food Distribution
Every year, our Food Pantry distributes special Thanksgiving boxes during the month of November. If you would like to organize a food drive, or contribute, specifically for the Thanksgiving boxes, you may be interested to know that we will start distributing special Thanksgiving items, $10 grocery store gift cards, and frozen turkeys on November 3, 2014.
If you’re thinking about scheduling a Thanksgiving drive, please note that drives that end by late October are encouraged, since they allow us to distribute these items to individuals and families who come to the Food Pantry at the beginning of November, and throughout the month.
Here is a list of our list of most requested Thanksgiving food items:
- Frozen Turkeys
- Canned Gravy
- Instant Mashed Potatoes
- Stuffing Mix
- Canned Cranberry Sauce
- Canned Pumpkin
- Canned pie fillings
- Canned sweet potatoes
- Canned soups
