Although every day is a struggle for our people facing hunger, the holidays can be a particularly stressful time. As their neighbors, co-workers and friends prepare for a celebration with family that includes a traditional meal, extra treats and gifts, they wonder if they will have enough food to keep their families from going to bed hungry. Together, we have an opportunity to take away the worry of where their Thanksgiving or winter holiday meal will come from for these families.
Through our partnership with Northern Illinois Food Bank, we can obtain Holiday Meal Boxes. Each box contains everything needed to make a traditional holiday meal for a family of eight, including a 12-14 pound turkey, vegetables, fruit, potatoes, gravy, stuffing, dessert and coffee. This meal would cost $128 at a local buffet. To purchase the ingredients in the store would cost nearly $40.* Through our affiliation with Northern Illinois Food Bank, you can help us provide a Holiday Meal Box to a family for just a $16 donation – that’s the equivalent of just $2 per person for a full turkey dinner!
