We’ve served more than a million meals to people in need

Mountaire’s Thanksgiving for Thousands program has been feeding needy families on Delmarva for over 25 years. In North Carolina, our program has been in place for more than a decade. Our program has even grown beyond Thanksgiving, and we now pack meals for families at Christmas and Easter, too.

We partner with area churches, food banks, and other groups to serve families a complete Thanksgiving feast, ready to cook and just in time for the holidays. Each box contains a plump Mountaire roaster chicken and all the fixings for a delicious holiday meal.

Does your non-profit want to help feed others this Thanksgiving?

Sign up for for this year’s Thanksgiving for Thousands boxes! Registration for bulk orders closes October 21.

If you are an individual looking for a box for your family, we will have walk-in sites on Tuesday, November 22, and boxes will be given on a first-come, first-served basis. Check back later for details!


We owe it all to our volunteers

None of it would be possible without the support of the community, as hundreds of volunteers show up each year to help us pack boxes.

If you would like to help those less fortunate have a Thanksgiving, Christmas or Easter meal this year, please consider joining our Feed-A-Family Campaign. Thanks to Mountaire’s partnership with the Delaware Community Foundation, you can donate $10 or more to the Mountaire Thanksgiving for Thousands Fund and help us feed another family in need this holiday season. Each $10 donation creates another meal box from the program.
