Food For Pullman
Thanksgiving Food Drive and Meal Giveaway - 2023 Edition
Date: November 22nd, 2023
Location: Pullman City Hall Senior Center
2023 Planning and Purchasing has Begun!
Meal signups are now closed for 2023
Signups for this year's event have closed.
Each year I've prepared a handful of walk-up/day-of kits for the event, this year we do have four available as well on a first come/first served basis. Unfortunately delivery will not be possible for these.
This year the need and signups have been higher than the last two years and we have significantly gone beyond our food purchasing budget.
The event for 2023 will be taking place at the Pullman City Hall Senior Center (Building B - Parks and Recreation). This venue has it's own entrance at the far end of the City Hall site from the main entry on SE Crestview St.
While it does help us to have you sign up for a bag (or multiple) before the event, we will be providing bags for walk-in needs on the day of the event as well.
Our goal is to turn no person away! All unused food from the event meal kits will be donated directly to the WSU Student Food Pantry to ensure nothing goes to waste.
All donations day of the event to the food drive will be donated to the same location.
Huge Thanks to our 2021/2022 Donors!
I would also like to extend a huge thank you to everyone that donated to make 2021 and 2022 possible and a success. Your donations have now combined to over 45 meal kits given out for the Thanksgiving Holiday on the Palouse (~130 meals worth of food) and day of donations of non-perishable foods for the WSU student pantry have totaled hundreds of pounds of food to help students at WSU during the rest of the year.
I'd like to give a personal thank you to Corey and JR for taking time out of their holiday schedules to help me source and put together all the meal kits, as well as spending time in the cold handing them out with me for two straight years!
I can't wait to get things started for 2023, our 3rd year of operating Food For Pullman's Thanksgiving food giveaway. It means the world to me that so many people have given time, money, food, and helped spread the word so that we can help people in need.
From the bottom the bottom of my heart, thank you.
