Thanksgiving Meals 2020 – Thank You and Photos

On Thursday 11/19, we delivered 15 Thanksgiving meals (complete with a turkey, pie, fresh produce, and all the traditional fixings) to Faith Family Kitchen in Hyannis to be distributed to food insecure families. While we were making the delivery, it came to our attention that there were additional families that would be blessed by receiving a meal. Five more meals and five $25 gift cards were purchased and delivered that evening to Faith Faith Family Kitchen for distribution. Thank you to all who donated time and resources to feed these hungry families!
