2019 Turkey Distribution 08.14.2019

It’s almost turkey time….and as promised, we are sending out information regarding this year’s event a little earlier to allow planning time for all. Included below is a copy of the 2018 turkey distribution recap presentation from last year’s distribution. These are the results from the survey many of you participated in. Several changes are being made to this year’s event, as a result of that feedback. So, thank you again to all those who participate in our surveys – we value your input and want to make our services and programs better for all.

This year, All Faiths will not be conducting any mass distribution turkey giveaways. This is to allow our partner agencies the opportunity to participate in this event and distribute to those who are regular clients of the pantries/meal sites.

We will be pre-allocating a set number of turkey meals to each agency. If you feel your allocation is too high, you may request fewer meals. Any declined and/or extra meals received through donations will be made available via the online ordering system. If you are in need of more turkey meals, they may be available on a first-come-first-serve basis through the online ordering system. A turkey request form will be mailed out to each agency. This form will identify how many turkey meals your agency has been allocated. If for some reason, you don’t receive mail with the number of your allocated turkey meals by August 26th, please contact Amber Lee. The form will need to be completed and returned no later than October 20.

Partner Agency update and New Mobile Pantry Partner 07.19.2019

TouchPoint Community Church off Clark Road in Sarasota, closed its pantry in August. The pantry normally distributed every Thursday from 12:00-2:00pm. TouchPoint was a partner with AFFB for 8 years. We are sad to see them leave the network and wish them well in their other ministries.

We would like to welcome a new partner agency – New Hope Community Church. Larry and his team will be providing food assistance every Monday and Friday from 3:00-5:00pm and the 2nd Saturday of each month from 11:00am-1:00pm. New Hope is an active member of the North Port community and is excited to partner with AFFB in order to expand its food outreach. New Hope Community Church is located at 5600 S. Biscayne Drive, North Port.

We also have a new mobile pantry partner – First Baptist Church of Ft. Ogden. Distribution is located at 6831 SW Senate Street, Arcadia, and runs the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month from 10:00am-12:00pm.
