During the holiday season, Food 4 Life, holds a Turkey Drive to provide families in need with a holiday dinner. With 1 in 10 families in Halton “food insecure,” the annual turkey drive ensures that everyone shares in a happy holiday feast.
If you’d like to help feed a hungry family, there are three options:
- Purchase a handmade turkey drawing at any WF event like the one pictured here! They were created especially for us by the children at a local Burlington school. They are only $5 and will be a great addition to your holiday decorations. Note: For every $5 purchase, your name will be entered for a chance to win a gift bag of goodies. Draw will be held Sunday, December 10th at the Widowed Friends Holiday Dinner
- If you’d like to purchase a turkey for a family in need, go to your local Fortino’s (see the stores listed below) on December 9th and buy a turkey. You’ll see the Food For Life Turkey Team at the store that day, ready to accept turkey donations. They will have a freezer truck and facilities to store turkeys.
- Join the Widowed Friends Turkey Team! Volunteers are needed Saturday afternoon Dec 9th at Fortino’s to encourage shoppers to buy a turkey. This is a fun volunteering event, so join the crowd and help make Christmas a little happier for everyone.
If you’d like to join a turkey team, please sign up on meet up asap so we can let Food For Life know how many volunteers they can count on for the afternoon of December 9th.
