Thanksgiving For All – Frequently Asked Questions

Connecticut Foodshare’s annual Thanksgiving For All campaign raises funds and collects frozen turkeys at community drives across the state so that all of our neighbors can have a holiday to remember.  With nearly 400,000 people facing food insecurity in our state, your generosity helps year-round as well, and supports our work as the Feeding America member food bank for the people of Connecticut.
