How we’re giving back this Thanksgiving.
For so many of us, food is something we take for granted every day. But it’s this time of year when we actually stop to take a moment to be thankful for it. And, thanks entirely to you, our customers, we’re able to make the holidays a little easier for the less fortunate.
Today marks the final day of our 15 Days of Giving program, and we’re at the Mott Haven Bar and Grill in the Bronx with Borough President Rubén Díaz Jr. hosting our 2017 Thanksgiving Annual Turkey Donation event where we’re giving away more than 500 turkeys to food-insecure families.
Located just a few blocks from our new home in the heart of the South Bronx, this is our fourth year in a row holding the giveaway at the Mott Haven Bar and Grill in partnership with proprietor Rosa Garcia. The event begins at 10 AM but has become so popular that local residents start lining up from 7 AM (don’t worry, we serve hot chocolate to keep everyone warm!).
In addition to our Bronx turkey giveaway, we’re working with charities throughout all of the areas we serve, hosting a dozen other food donation events. These contributions are only made possible because of you, and for that we are truly thankful.
We know that there is so much more that we can do, and by shopping with us, you have helped us comfort thousands of underprivileged families over numerous Thanksgivings. It is our hope that together we will help many more in the years to come. We also know that when it comes to grocery shopping you have many choices, and we sincerely appreciate you choosing to shop with us.
From our family to yours, happy Thanksgiving.
