Thanksgiving Food Drive

God says to serve those in need. So we do.


Commitment: One-time serve
Perfect for: Groups, Families, Adults

We believe that helping those in need is a core part of who we are and who God wants us to be. So we do it in a big, big way at Thanksgiving. This year, we've ordered thousands of boxes, expectant that God will show up through your unprecedented generosity.

In partnership with local churches, schools, civic organizations, and faith-based ministries, we'll be providing Thanksgiving meals to over 115,000 people in our communities. We’ll also be providing thousands of bulk food items to food pantries and partners in our cities.

If you’re wondering what happened to the South Africa boxes, don’t worry, we’re still supporting our partners. Our ReachOut Global team is working with those partners to serve them in the best way in their current ministries.


Be a part of our 24th annual Thanksgiving Food Drive by signing up to serve during box distribution and collection. We'll distribute boxes then collect the filled boxes that will then be shared with partners and ultimately to tables throughout our communities. If you enjoy the honking of car horns, this job is especially for you.

Box pickups begin November 9-10 after services.
The last chance to pick up a box is November 16-17.
