Thank you so much for visiting our page! Every year we do this to try and raise money for families in need during the Thanksgiving holiday. We may take for granted even being able to afford to cook a Thanksgiving meal for our families.
FeedingNYC is an 18 year annual local grassroots hunger relief program of the 501c3 The Dream Big Foundation that has impacted over 70,000 NYC families-in-need.
Two days before Thanksgiving, with over 500 volunteers at Pier 60 @Chelsea Piers, we pack boxes with a frozen turkey and all the fixings and hand deliver to over 6,000 families across New York City homeless shelters. It really is eye-opening to see how many families really appreciate and need this gesture.
Amazing work so far, but sadly there is still so much more to do!
2.6M New Yorkers cannot afford a Thanksgiving meal. Tonight 15,553 families will sleep in homeless shelters. Every dollar $ counts towards brightening someone else's Thanksgiving holiday and giving them a chance to enjoy a hot Thanksgiving meal.
Thank you again, it means the world to us!
