You Can Put the "Giving" Back in Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a time to reunite with loved ones, feast on delicious food, and contemplate the things for which we are grateful. However, for thousands in our community, Thanksgiving takes on a larger meaning. For those battling a life-challenging illness, Thanksgiving is about living to celebrate another holiday and putting aside their cares for just one day.

By making a gift today, you can make Thanksgiving extra special for our clients and make it possible for Food & Friends to prepare and deliver 3,500 complete holiday dinners.

With over 74% of our clients living in poverty, many do not have enough money to purchase food on a day-to-day basis, let alone for Thanksgiving. Please help make sure no client spends the holiday hungry by sending a gift today.

Life-challenging illnesses like HIV/AIDS, breast cancer, or prostate cancer are relentless everyday struggles. These struggles won’t stop for clients just because it is Thanksgiving, but on this special day of thanks, knowing they will receive a full Thanksgiving meal to share with their loved ones - made possible because of your gift - can make a very big difference.
