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 Thnksgiving dinner for four to six people.  We expect a record number of requests this year.  We need your help to meet this need.

The Idaho Department of Correction hosted a resource fair this week, aiming to foster safer communities by giving newly released offenders the resources they need to stay out of crime. 6 On Your Side's Madeline White introduces us to one ex-offender who plans to do just that. https://buff.ly/2I1gMM7

A small part of what we do is share what we have learned here in Southwest Idaho with a larger audience. This way, other St. Vincent de Paul organizations around the country can benefit from the lessons we have learned and we can also take home their ideas. This enables us to give more people in the community an even better hand up!
