Feeding the 5000: Thanksgiving Outreach is a local community of volunteers and business partners coming together in the battle against hunger in Southwest Florida.
Over the past five years, we have provided over 10,000 Thanksgiving meals to needy families across a five county area—from Port Charlotte to Immokalee. Hundreds of community volunteers join together during the week of Thanksgiving to prepare and package fresh, hot meals. On Thanksgiving morning, volunteer drivers deliver those meals to families and ensure that everyone has plenty to be thankful for.
Feeding the 5000 provides our best opportunity to fight against hunger, to support our community, and to help needy families during the holiday season.
Want to get involved?
We need hundreds of volunteers during the week of Thanksgiving. You can register to volunteer on our website at www.feedingthe5000.net/volunteer. Registration is open from October to Thanksgiving Day each year.
If you are unable to volunteer, we would love if you could make a donation. Just $16 will provide Thanksgiving Dinner (turkey, dressing, side dishes, dessert, and bread) for a family of four. 100% of the proceeds go directly toward food and supplies for the outreach. To learn more about ways to donate, visit our website.
We also have several other opportunities to help the mission throughout the year. We host a team Trivia Night each February where a portion of the proceeds go to benefit both F5K and LOG. It’s a fun night for a great cause! Check out the church calendar to learn more about these opportunities.
