Background: This community event is the third in our series of annual Thanksgiving for Thousands events that started 25 years ago on Delmarva (Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter). Volunteers help us pack a complete meal for a family of four including: a Mountaire roaster, mashed potatoes, gravy, peas and carrots, corn and a brownie mix for dessert. Volunteers also help load the boxes into vehicles as churches, community groups, and non-profits who have all pre-registered for the boxes line up to pick up their order. *Due to COVID, volunteers will be limited, and social distancing will be in place. Masks will be mandatory.
For the first time at Easter, Mountaire is also packing 1,100 meal boxes in North Carolina as we partner with churches there to find meet the community needs.
