Fort Worth food bank in need of 500 turkeys to feed hungry families on Thanksgiving

“Turkeys are something everyone wants because when you have kids, kids equate Thanksgiving with turkeys.”

FORT WORTH, Texas – The East Fort Worth Community Food Bank has been serving boxes of Thanksgiving groceries to hungry families for nearly 10 years.

This year, they feed nearly 5,000 hungry people with a Thanksgiving Day. We’re talking about a turkey, cranberry sauce, and all the ingredients in a take-home box.

But they need your help to make it happen. They say they just don’t have enough turkeys.

“Turkeys are something everyone wants because when you have kids, kids equate Thanksgiving with turkeys,” said Regena Taylor, executive director of the Community Food Bank.

So far, 4,800 families in need depend on the donated Thanksgiving meals this year. That means 4,800 turkeys.

There were some donations starting Monday afternoon, but 500 turkeys are still short.

“We couldn’t do it without people in the north Texas community,” Taylor said. “We couldn’t do it without help. Our motto is ‘feed families, feed hope’. We treat our customers with dignity and respect.”

They are asking for your help with this Thanksgiving Day.

They accept turkey donations at 3000 Galvez, but they say an easier way to help is to donate on their website by Tuesday by clicking here.
