For over 40 years, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul has sponsored an annual Thanksgiving food box outreach program for those in need. This is a family-to-family act of charity. Families share the tradition of Thanksgiving by preparing food boxes and giving them to other families in need.

All seven Boise and Meridian Catholic parishes plus a number of congregations of our Protestant and LDS friends participate in this project. This is an opportunity for families to help families in need.

Last fall, we distributed more than 2,600 turkeys with all the trimmings for a complete Thanksgiving dinner for nearly 12,000 people. We expect a record number of requests this year. We need your help to meet this need.
