Feed-A-Family seeks names, donations for Thanksgiving
STEVENSVILLE — The community Feed-a-Family Community Food Program, operating in Chester, Grasonville, Queenstown, Stevensville and parts of Centreville, has been providing Thanksgiving Food Boxes and hot meals to Queen Anne’s County residents and families for the past 13 years.
Names are now being accepted for those who wish to receive a food box this Thanksgiving. The deadline to submit your name is Nov. 10. Baskets will be delivered before 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17. To register for the program, call 410739-0389 or 443-622-6837.
Anyone wishing to help with this year’s program is asked to contact Bobbie Bell at 410-829-9834 or firstname.lastname@example.org or check www.feedafamily. net.
There are several ways to participate with the program: by donating time through volunteering, donating a frozen turkey or ham, by donating nonperishable food items or by donating grocery gift cards.
Grocery gift cards and cash donations can be mailed to Christ Church, 830 Romancoke Road, Stevensville, MD 21666. Please note the donation is for Feed-A-Family.
Feed-a-Family is not affiliated with any county or state agency and does not receive grant money. The community program is sponsored by local churches and supported through the donations of community members. Several local schools and businesses also host food drives, and the food collected is passed on to local food banks.
Feed-a-Family delivers food and turkeys the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Last year, 480 families benefited from the program, which also helped with four other Thanksgiving programs and three Christmas programs, three church backpack programs and five local food banks.
