Our founders felt it was important for each family to enjoy a day of gratitude in the comfort of their own home. We are happy to carry on that tradition again this year with a distribution on the Monday prior to Thanksgiving Day. Each box contains ingredients for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. 

Each family interested in receiving a box must submit an application, which are accepted while supplies are available. Please call or check social media sites. Distribution is held on Monday of Thanksgiving week at 780 S. Davis Ave., Weed.

Please call 530-408-6115 for questions.

Made possible by The Ford Family Foundation (Roseburg, OR) and Cal Ore Produce (Tulelake, CA).
