What is Turkey and a $20?

One80 Place is setting the tone for the holiday season by providing donors with a fun and festive experience while accounting for the fact that most people will only have time to “drive through and drop off.”

On Tuesday, November 26, your donations will help us fund our food rescue program and allow us to rescue nearly two tons of food a week from local grocers, restaurants, and food partners. Without meeting our goal, we will be at risk of not being able to rescue about 220,000 pounds of food annually, which will allow us to serve 170,000 meals. The proteins donated will be cooked year-round in One80 Place’s Community Kitchen.

We want everyone to have the opportunity to engage in the spirit of giving no matter how busy their schedule. In the short time it takes to drive through and drop off a turkey and $20, someone can help feed HUNDREDS of people.

When and where is Turkey and a $20?
