A Turkey on Every Table

We believe every family deserves a Thanksgiving dinner, and with your help, we can make that a reality for thousands of families in our region. 

Turkey, stuffing, potatoes, pie… everyone has something to look forward to at Thanksgiving dinner. But what about the families who can’t afford the basics – let alone a holiday meal?

Over the last few months, more people than ever have needed help putting food on the table, and the holidays are going to be especially tough. In response, United Way has been working with community partners to create a robust and connected local food system to guarantee easier access to healthy food across the region.

We believe every family deserves a Thanksgiving dinner, and with your help, we can make that a reality for thousands of families in our region.
