Turkey Distribution

This year the Thanksgiving holiday comes on the twenty third and many people all around the country are getting into the Distribution business, the Turkey Distribution business.  During the holidays many people step up their efforts to help local homeless shelters and food kitchens to provide meals for those in need.

While many families are planning cook times and preparation schedules for 10-20 pounds of turkey, Brian Rice of New Jersey plans on distributing over 85,000 pounds of turkey this year more than double last years effort.  That's a lot of bird to move around.  This year he's even gotten some nice people from a little known football team called the New York Giants to help.

In Connecticut, the Salvation Army offers up a different type of Turkey Distribution.  They are providing a bag of groceries and a ticket for a turkey for each family that qualifies.  Cooking a turkey need not be an elaborate affair.  While some people may buy special roasters or deep fry the bird or many other possibilities, there are some very good and cost effective ways to turn that turkey into a feast.  A simple cooking bag can really bring out the flavor of a turkey and all of the food for the dinner. The birds in Connecticut are a little small this year, but a turkey is a turkey.

Many more people all around the country will be volunteering, delivering meals and much much more to distribute a little bit of holiday cheer.  Please consider helping yourself or donating to a local charity to make this a special holiday for the people in your community.
