Giving Thanks This Thanksgiving
This holiday season families across the country will set their tables to come together and enjoy a Thanksgiving meal. For many of us, the holidays wouldn’t be complete without a turkey and heaping sides of stuffing and mashed potatoes on the table. But for the millions of families who struggle this is not always an option.
In the spirit of the season, you can help your neighbor by donating food to your local food bank. Here’s how by Feeding America.
The Feeding America network includes over 200 food banks throughout the United States that work with food pantries to reach communities. Once you find a food bank near you, you can find drop-off information, operation hours, and even most needed items.
Items most needed:
• Boxed stuffing
• Instant mashed potatoes
• Canned vegetables
• Dry macaroni
• Cranberry sauce
• Canned Pumpkin
