Thanksgiving Meal Distribution Day is November 24

Thanksgiving meal distribution box donate volunteer distribute

Community members can support in several ways:

Donate specific food items for the meal boxes. Donations of green beans, jello, yams, stuffing, cranberries, chicken broth, pumpkin pie mix and cream of mushroom soup are needed. All donations should be non-perishable. 

Volunteers are needed for a food drive, which will be held on Saturday, November 8 from noon to 4:00 p.m. at the three local Apple Markets. Volunteers are also needed to pack Thanksgiving meal boxes during the week of November 17. 

Help sponsor a box for $10. In addition to donations of boxed and canned goods, Second Harvest is also encouraging community residents to assist in the Turkey Day effort by providing financial donations. Just $10 will sponsor a Thanksgiving box for a food insecure family in the St. Joseph area.

Gather to help distribute packed meal boxes. On November 24, volunteers are needed for distributing boxes. In order to create an orderly and streamlined process, Second Harvest sets up a drive-up assembly line so that members can receive their boxes in an efficient process.
