Beginning Sunday afternoon, volunteers come to pull the meat off the turkeys and package them in individual- and family-size portions. This is one of the most popular volunteer opportunities for families and groups. You’ll often find various youth groups and Boy/Girl Scout troops huddling over tables to weigh pieces of turkey.



On Wednesday, we’ll start cooking the rest of the fixings that make Thanksgiving Dinner so delicious. Then, Wednesday afternoon, we’ll package trays for families that have the ability to reheat their meals at home and put them in the refrigerator truck for the drivers on Thursday morning.



Bright and early on Thursday morning, hundreds of volunteers join together to package hot meals and deliver them to thousands of families across 5 counties in Southwest Florida. Adult groups are encouraged to drive together; the experience when delivering the meals is a very rewarding one!

Less than 8-10 volunteers?
