Each year The Shepherd’s Market has been able to provide lagniappe, or a little something extra, to our clients in the form of our Great Turkey Giveaway. On the Saturday before Christmas we provide families with a complete turkey dinner. This exciting event brings our community together to celebrate the joy of the season.
Saturday, December 17, 2016, will be the 6th Annual Great Turkey Giveaway!
Our previous annual giveaways have been big successes. Each year we give away 450 loaves of homemade bread (thanks to Duane Craig), 450 turkeys each with a blessing tag, 450 bags of fresh produce from the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank, and 450 bags of side items to complete holiday meals! What a great day of service with more than 75 volunteers. Thank you to everyone!
