Thanksgiving Meal Bag Collection

Every year, our community has generously provided traditional sides and trimmings to help Beach Food Pantry clients have a Thanksgiving meal. About three years ago, we did something different. We asked our community to donate Thanksgiving Meal Bags that were distributed to current Beach Food Pantry clients the week prior to Thanksgiving. The response was amazing! The food-filled grocery bags included a donated turkey - or a gift card to purchase one - along with items for a traditional holiday meal. We are so grateful for a community of individuals and businesses who offer support throughout the year to help us fight hunger in Dare County. This year, we will be collecting bags on Friday, November 16th from 4PM-6PM. Use the list below to fill one bag or gather family and friends together to fill more!
