Alameda Needs More Turkeys for Islanders in Need

The Alameda Food Bank says that its current goal is to provide 1,000 turkeys — along with ham and beef roasts — for those in need on the Island during the holiday season.

The food bank hopes to have 500 by Tuesday, November 22, for its Thanksgiving Turkey distribution, and another 500 for those who would like a bird or other meat for later in the holiday season.

Fresh and frozen turkeys (as well as hams and beef roasts) are being accepted at 1900 Thau Way on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:30 a m to 5:00 p.m., on Tuesdays from 11:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., on Thursdays from 11:30 am to 3:30 pm, and the second and third Saturday of the month from 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

As of November 20, the food bank says it has received or has commitments for 404 turkeys.
