Not everyone has the means to buy or prepare all the fixings for a Thanksgiving feast each year. That’s where organizations like the Sunday Breakfast Mission come in. In the next few days, the Wilmington nonprofit plans to deliver 1,800 50-pound food boxes to 1,400 families so that they have the food they need for the holiday and the days beyond.
But the mission’s freezer is empty. It needs to quickly collect 1,500 turkeys as well as various non-perishable items so that it can feed the folks who requested a Thanksgiving food box.
The mission is also asking for donations of vegetables, fruits, macaroni and cheese, peanut butter, mashed potatoes, yams, cranberry sauce, cereal, soup, tuna, chicken, stuffing, and other dry and canned items to fill 1,800 food boxes. The goal is to collect 60 tons of food, but so far only 10 tons have come in.
Items can be dropped off at WSFS Bank branches, as well as the Sunday Breakfast Mission at 110 N. Poplar St., Wilmington.
