Turkeys & Toys Holiday Distribution

November 22, 2022 / 5 mins read

The Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank will host its second annual Turkeys & Toys distribution to provide families in need of holiday season support an opportunity to receive food for holiday meals and toys for Christmas. The event will be a drive-through on Saturday, December 10, in the parking lot of Virginia Credit Union Stadium from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. and aims to supply at least 500 families with turkeys and toys.

There is no pre-registration required, and the Food Bank does anticipate being able to provide more than 500 families with food assistance on a first-come, first-served basis. There certainly will be enough turkeys and toys to provide those items to at least 500 families, but depending on the number who attend the event, the supply of turkeys and toys may be exhausted before the drive-through line ends.

The Food Bank has received support from several area sponsors to conduct the event, most notably Giant and Shady Brook Farms, which have provided donated turkeys, Toys for Tots, and PetSmart, which provided donated toys with the assistance of the Rappahannock Office on Youth.

"The Turkeys and Toys event is our most significant holiday food distribution," said Dan Maher, President & CEO of the Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank. "Our experience in providing food assistance across the region throughout the year has shown us we can anticipate an exceptionally large number of families needing this level of assistance during the holiday season. Thanks to our community's commitment to helping, we are privileged to be in a position to offer strong support again this holiday season."
