Thanksgiving Initiative


NFSB gratefully acknowledges the many community partners and generous individuals who helped to make the Food Pantry Thanksgiving Initiative possible. As a result, all of the Food Pantry participants are able to partake in a bountiful Thanksgiving meal. Our best wishes to all for a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving Holiday!

In addition to their regular distribution bags, close to 150 households were offered a turkey and trimmings for a complete Thanksgiving meal. The volunteers were amazing!
