Turkey and Thirty campaign kicks off

This morning Foodshare announced the need for 20,000 turkeys and $900,000 this holiday season, kicking off what is expected to be our most challenging Thanksgiving yet. With less than two weeks to achieve these goals (including 1,000 more turkeys than last year), families across the region are counting on us to help them this Thanksgiving.

Thankfully, leadership gifts from long-time supporters like Stop & Shop, donating 1,000 turkeys during the HOG Turkey Run, helped launch the campaign. And companies like Lincoln Financial and BioSafe Systems have issued challenges to help your gift stretch even further!

Over the next couple of weeks, events will be going on all over greater Hartford in support of Foodshare, including dozens of Turkey Challenge drives. You can visit to track our progress, or view the most recent event results.
We hope we can count on your support, along with the rest of the community, to make this a memorable Thanksgiving for all of our hungry neighbors!
