What is Turkeys Tackling Hunger?

Join us in our 12th year of providing the fixings for a home-cooked holiday meal for low-income residents all across Hays County. For just $30, you can help fill one family's dinner table.
 
Everyone deserves a place at the table.

 


How does the community pitch in?

Between September 1 and November 27, individuals, schools, churches, and organizations assist us by raising food and funds for Hays County Food Bank. We then purchase all of the meal box items and store them for assembly day. Title Sponsor Night Hawk Frozen Foods (Buda, Texas) will donate their time, staff, and resources to assemble the meal boxes at their production site. Once the boxes are assembled, volunteers from the community help us distribute the boxes to needy families. It truly takes a village to make this event successful! You can make a personal donation to Turkeys Tackling Hunger donation here or learn about how your school, church or organization can help here. To show you how much we appreciate you, during the month of September, a donation of $30.00 or more will earn you a 2018 Turkeys Tacking Hunger t-shirt. Feel free to Contact us for more information about how you can help.
