Project Thanksgiving Board Challenge
As we prepare for the 30th year of Project Thanksgiving™ with our partners CBS 12 News and the Palm Beach County Food Bank, our goal is to raise money and food supplies to provide our neighbors in need with a hearty, holiday meal. For many hard working individuals and families in our community, putting food on the table is hard every day. During the holidays, it’s even harder.
Did you know?
- It only takes $20 to feed a family of 4.
- Over 300,000 residents don’t know where their next meal will come from.
- 53,000 of those individuals are children.
- SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) applications increased by 380% between February 2020 and May 2020, and increased by 42% between April and May.
