Year 3 of HomeAid Orange County’s Thanksgiving Meal Drive, aimed at collecting non-perishable foods for families and individuals experiencing homelessness so that they too can have food on the table for Thanksgiving dinner.
We need you to donate non-perishable canned and boxed food items. These will make up the Thanksgiving Meal Boxes that will be distributed to those living in housing developed by our organization and operated by our non-profit service provider partners. We ask that the food items be:
- Cranberry Sauce
- Mashed Potatoes
- Vegetables such as green beans, corn, carrot, etc.
- Non-perishable Deserts
**please no opened food items or drinks.
How do the meal boxes get to those in need?
In partnership with the OC Food Bank of CAP/OC, the donated food is put into boxes providing enough food for a Thanksgiving meal that can feed up to 4 people. This year, our goal is to assemble over 1,000 Thanksgiving Meal boxes thanks to the help of volunteers and donors like you.
What can you do to get involved?
- Donate food at any of our donation sites
- Host a donation site
- Volunteer at Harvesting Hope Day or Meal Box Assembly Day
- Sponsor Homeless Awareness Month, which includes supporting the Thanksgiving Meal Drive. Learn more about the sponsorship levels here.
What does it mean to host a donation site?
You collect donations of the above listed items from your community and then drop them off at Harvesting Hope Day. We provide you with a donation box and flyers.
