Alameda Food Bank Announces 2016 Turkey Drive
For many decades the Alameda community has come together to support local families during the holiday season. Today, nearly one in seven Alameda households receive help from the Alameda Food Bank. Last year, our community generously donated more than 1,200 turkeys, which were distributed, along with other holiday food items, to our clients. We thank the people of Alameda for their ongoing generosity — without it we would not be able to serve our neighbors in need.
This year our goal is to collect 1,200 turkeys by Wednesday, November 16, 2016.
IF YOU CAN DONATE A TURKEY: Please bring turkeys (preferably frozen) to 1900 Thau Way Monday-Friday between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. If you have a large number of turkeys, please call 510-523-6064 or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to coordinate a drop at our warehouse.
IF YOU NEED A TURKEY: Turkeys will be distributed to current Alameda Food Bank clients on a first-come, first-served basis on Saturday, November 19 between 10 AM and 1:30 PM at our warehouse at 650 W. Ranger Avenue. In addition to receiving a turkey, each household will receive a bag of holiday foods such as mashed potatoes, yams and cranberries.
