You Can Help Green Street Catering Feed Local Families This Thanksgiving, Here’s How

Published Wednesday, November 16, 2016 at 10:20 am

We want to invite you to take part in a wonderful opportunity with Green Street Catering this Thanksgiving season. Please read below about our “Family to Family” program that allows your family to serve other families of our community during this Thanksgiving.

Green Street Catering is a non-profit organization that serves a free meal every Thursday evening out of the kitchen at Alliance Bible Fellowship church to anyone in the local community that can benefit from it. We have served over 50,000 meals since 2010. We work with many churches, community organizations/clubs/groups and social workers to provide and serve over 500 meals each week to the wonderful people of our community. We continue to grow in the number of churches and groups that we work with and the meals delivered or people served each year. Please see our website at www.greenstreetcatering.org for more information about what we are doing and how you can be a part of serving our community with us.

As we go into this year’s Thanksgiving holiday, Green Street Catering will be distributing food baskets through the area churches, social workers as well as community organizations for our fourth year. Last year, we distributed over 400 Thanksgiving food baskets and the need has continued to grow for this year. We expect to distribute over 400 food baskets again for the Thanksgiving holiday this year. We need your help please!

We would love your help in any ways that you can! Here are some ideas of ways you can help us serve our wonderful community with food baskets for Thanksgiving this year:

1.You may choose to shop or organize a canned/boxed food drive for the specific boxed and canned items listed below.

2.You may choose to shop or organize a turkey drive to provide the most expensive part of our baskets. You can either raise funds or ask others to donate turkeys. Have a turkey call at your next party or gathering!

3.You may choose to donate financially for the sponsorship of one or more turkey baskets ($75 each).   Please note that any funds raised over the costs of the distributed baskets will go into the general operating funds of Green Street Catering to continue to provide weekly community meals for free throughout the year. Please make all checks payable to Green Street Catering – 200 Sierra Vista, Boone, NC 28607. All donations receive a note of gratitude from Green Street Catering that includes our non-profit number so that it may serve as a tax-deductible receipt.

4.You may choose to organize your own basket(s) for distribution. You may also wish to add your own personal touch with homemade cards or other personal gifts to your basket. Each basket must include the following:

(1) frozen turkey of at least 10 lbs.

(2) boxed/bagged stuffing

(2) cans of corn

(2) cans of green beans

(2) cans of cranberry sauce

(2) boxes of instant mashed potatoes

(2) boxes of macaroni and cheese

(2) jars of turkey gravy

10-12 rolls from the bakery

(2) pies – pumpkin, pecan, apple

Please bring any of the canned/boxed items listed above to Alliance church to be used in food baskets. Label them Green Street Catering food baskets please. If you wish to donate any perishable items (turkeys, rolls, bread, etc…), please contact us at greenstreetcatering@gmail.com and we will coordinate pickups to keep foods fresh and safe. We need to have all of our foods and bags ready to start distributing on November 15.
