Thanksgiving Food Box Project

The 2018 program has concluded. Thanks to the incredible community support, over 10,000 people were able to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal. Check back early next fall for 2019 information. 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 2,300 turkeys with all the trimmings for a complete Thanksgiving dinner for four to six people.  We expect a record number of requests this year.  We need your help to meet this need.

We had an amazing crew of 40 volunteers from Bronco Catholic Association help out at our dining hall tonight! The event included mass, an hour of fast paced service, dinner, and education on what we do as an organization! Thank you!

What we do as an organization would be simply impossible without our dedicated volunteers. We have a small army of 1,600 volunteers who clocked over 85,000 hours of service to our community this past year. Thank you Volunteers!
