Thanksgiving Meal Baskets and Food Drive
Each year Interfaith provides Thanksgiving meal baskets to hundreds of disadvantaged households from across the South Shore. We work closely with all of the other emergency food programs in the area to coordinate our efforts. Each family receives a meal package containing all the fixings for a holiday meal: potatoes, carrots, cranberry sauce, stuffing mix, green beans, corn, gravy (cans or mix), pie filling and a turkey or a supermarket gift card to purchase one.
Last year Interfaith Social Services’ Thanksgiving program provided holiday meals to over 900 households.
Thanksgiving Food Drive
The Sunday before Thanksgiving every year is our annual Ingathering Food Drive. Individuals and houses of worship conduct food drives before that day and then deliver donated food to our office all morning and early afternoon. Those donations keep the pantry shelves stocked during our busiest period of the year.
