For the holidays, the 100 launched initiatives to spread the joys of Thanksgiving to economically disadvantaged individuals of South Florida. Since 1989, the 100, through its Thanksgiving Food Drive, has purchased and assembled “baskets” with traditional Thanksgiving meals for needy residents in South Florida. The 100 delivers the meals to various social and Community Partner Programs. The agencies identify the families and distribute the meals. To date more than 250,000 individuals in South Florida have benefited from the program through the 100’s partnership with Jorge & Jerry’s IGA and now Food Partner – PUBLIX supermarkets. The 100 serve Thanksgiving meals from as far as Florida City to Sunrise, Florida with assistance of our Logistics Partner – UPS.
As we continue to impact the lives of many families year to year with our Thanksgiving Food Drive, our list of families in need continues to grow as the territory of families to feed.
