Feeding Chittenden is looking to feed 3,500 families for Thanksgiving this year, and with the holiday less than a month away, it’s calling on the community to help support food insecure families.
Donations received through the organization’s virtual food drive will be used to purchase turkeys, mashed potatoes, stuffing and potatoes. Anna McMahon, the Donor and Community Engagement Manager said this is the most difficult time of year for the people they serve.
“For a lot of people it’s just one more stress on top of many other pressures going on in their life,” McMahon said. “And if we can take away a little bit of that stress by making sure they have that Thanksgiving meal, that holiday meal, it’s the least we can do.”
McMahon said a $25 donation will help feed a family of four. Turkey will be distributed Thursday November 18.
