A Turkey and Thirty

A Feast for Everyone

Thanksgiving is the holiday for everyone--something shared among family members, across communities, across faiths, across the country. And this is your chance to make sure that everyone can in fact enjoy this holiday. Your gift of a turkey (or several turkeys!) will ensure that your neighbors who are struggling with hard times can join in the celebration. And your gift of cash will ensure that they have something to be grateful for in the hard months ahead.

Last year, 19,896 people requested a turkey from Foodshare, and the community stepped up to provide them, along with more than $842,000 to support Foodshare's ongoing work. Check out our photo gallery from last year's event. And we plan to do the same this year -- check back on November 10 for our official goal announcement.
