Turkey Wars

A friendly competition to help our hungry neighbors this holiday season.

Everyone will get a Thanksgiving meal

 “I want you to know that Foodshare did, in fact, provide a hot meal for 15,871 families this Thanksgiving. This was only made possible by an incredible surge of support and donations from the community these past few days. Most of those hot meals will include a turkey, thanks to generous friends and neighbors in Greater Hartford —14,139 to be exact. The remaining meals will consist of chicken from our warehouse. With some last minute support late Tuesday – today’s small and final distribution was all turkeys!"

— James Arena-DeRosa, Foodshare President & CEO
