Thanksgiving Caring and Sharing in Central Texas

November 18th, 2011 § 1 comment

Rising Food Prices May Put Holiday Meals out of Reach

The American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) reports that average cost of Thanksgiving dinner is up 13% from 2010 – the biggest annual increase in two decades. Texas Farm Bureau reports a 4.66% increase this year. For some families, a price hike may mean a slight inconvenience, or a simple menu change. For others, a special holiday meal would be an unattainable luxury. Thankfully, we live in a caring community dedicated to sharing their bounty and time during this holiday season.

H-E-B Feast of Sharing

In its 22nd year, the H-E-B Feast of Sharing provides an annual thanksgiving feast in communities around Texas. On Tuesday, November 22 from 4 – 8 p.m. at the Palmer Events Center, bring your entire family to enjoy a complimentary holiday meal, music, arts and crafts, and kids activities. Free parking will be available in the Palmer Events Center parking garage. To volunteer for this event, visit the United Way website.

Randalls Donates 1,000 Turkeys to the Food Bank

This week, Randalls stopped by to deliver a shipment of turkeys weighing in at 11,000 pounds. The turkeys will be distributed through our network of 300 Partner Agencies. With rising food prices and the devastating effect of the recent drought, we really appreciate this generous and timely donation.


Turn hungry holidays into happy holidays, and get a sweet treat!

Consider donating a turkey during this holiday season. Turkeys must be frozen (never thawed or purchased unfrozen) from purchase to delivery.
