THE STORY:

Join us in filling baskets with fresh, fall bounty for area families in need this Thanksgiving, while supporting local farmers in the process.

Thanksgiving is a time for families to gather together and share a meal, but for many in the Metro-Detroit community, access to healthy, affordable options is an ongoing hardship and the holidays come as an added cost, not a reason to celebrate.  Many families in our target communities of Detroit find themselves living amidst a food desert, where it is easy to find a convenience store, but nearly impossible to find a spot that sells fresh produce. Financial hardship, alongside accessibility and lack of  transportation, provide insurmountable limitations to families in the community that desire the same opportunity to provide a nourishing Thanksgiving for their loved ones.

We have the power to change that.

A $50 donation will fill a basket with a turkey and all the nutritious fixings from local farmers for a traditional Thanksgiving meal. We have set a goal to fulfill the need for a healthy Thanksgiving at 40 families in the underserved communities of Detroit, but need your help to do so. Consider forgoing a meal out this week and donating that money to ensure our neighbors in  Metro-Detroit are able to gather around the table with satisfied stomachs and full hearts this Thanksgiving.
