Thanksgiving Food Box Program 2022

"It is not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them - that is the true measure of Thanksgiving."

For 46 years, the St. Vincent de Paul Society has sponsored an annual Thanksgiving food box outreach program for those less fortunate.  This is a family-to-family act of charity.  Your family can share the tradition of Thanksgiving with families in need. 

A food box includes a turkey of at least 10 pounds, 10 pounds of potatoes, a roasting pan, and all the trimmings to provide a nice Thanksgiving meal for four to six people. 

We welcome those of you who would like to follow our shopping list and create your own Thanksgiving food box to be presented to a family. To prepare a food box, click Donate a Food Box button.

We understand why some of you are not comfortable shopping to fill a Thanksgiving food box. This year, if you would like to make a financial contribution instead, St. Vincent de Paul will do the shopping and put a box together on your behalf.  The cost of a complete meal for four to six people is $70. To contribute financially, click the Financial Donation button.

We hope you will consider helping us.  To volunteer your time, to build, collect, stage, or distribute Thanksgiving food boxes; click the Volunteer Your Time button.

This is an opportunity for you to directly impact a family in need.  Please consider helping us provide a Thanksgiving dinner for those who would otherwise be unable to afford one.
