Helena Food Share in need of Turkeys for Thanksgiving

Posted: Updated:

With Thanksgiving is less than three weeks away the Helena Food Share is looking for donations of turkeys to help reach the needed amount for Thanksgiving.

The Helena Food Share is expecting to give out over 1,300 turkeys for this Thanksgiving, and currently are at 200 turkeys in stock. The Helena Food Share is seeking the publics help in reaching the amount needed. For those clients of the Helena Food Share you must register before hand for a turkey from the food bank.

Operations Manager Kim Pillen says "Ready for our Thanksgiving distribution and our clients need to pre-register before and up until the 22nd and they can pick up their turkeys at two locations this year, St. Mary's on the 24th and Lewis Street pantry at our Helena Food Share location on the 25th and they must pre-register and the cut off for registration is the 22nd."

In preparation for the season Helena College loaned the food bank a refrigerated truck to store the turkeys for all of November. Besides turkeys for the holiday, other top items are peanut butter, cold cereal, canned fruit, vegetables, and soup.

Donations can be taken to the Helena Food Share at 1616 Lewis St. in Helena.
