days of action

give thanks

To every person who created a meal box, ran a collection drive or donated their time and resources, we are so incredibly grateful.

We couldn’t have done it without you.

The holidays are an expensive time and can be especially difficult for families and individuals whose food budgets are already limited. The average family of four receives $465 a month for food through public assistance programs, which breaks down to $5.16 per meal. The average cost of a traditional holiday dinner is roughly $60. That’s 12 times the amount a family has available to spend on a single meal.

For our second-annual Give Thanks, more than 500 groups, individuals and companies collected food supplies and donated money for families throughout our region.
