LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN)- Beginning Nov. 20, Hy-Vee stores will be donating Thanksgiving meals to families in need.
260+ Hy-Vee and Dollar Fresh stores are going to be donating 100 meal kits each to a local non-profit partner in the community who will then distribute the meals to local families in need. Each kit is enough for a family of four.
Included in the meal kit is a turkey, corn, stuffing mix, rolls, green beans, and even a pumpkin pie.
“The effects of COVID-19 continue to impact families across all of our communities, especially when it comes to food insecurity,” Randy Edeker, chairman, CEO and president of Hy-Vee, Inc. says. “As a company, we wanted to give back to those in need this Thanksgiving so more people could enjoy a nice traditional meal with their family. As the holidays continue, we will be supporting our communities and local food banks to help ensure no one goes hungry this holiday season.”
