The Great Turkey Giveaway

Eighth Annual Great Turkey Giveaway

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 15, 2018, will be the 8th Annual Great Turkey Giveaway!

Would you like to help us feed families with a turkey dinner at Christmas time? You can feed a family for $15, or you can make a contribution for another amount. We appreciate your support!

Our previous annual giveaways have been big successes. This year we will give away 500 loaves of homemade bread (thanks to Duane Craig), 500 turkeys each with a blessing tag, 500 bags of fresh produce from the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank, and 500 bags of side items to complete holiday meals! What a great day of service. Our volunteers are the best!!! Thank you to everyone!

In 2018 University Lab School held its One Great Day of Giving to support our Great Turkey Giveaway. They raised nearly $900 for turkeys and provided more than 7,000 pounds of food in 778 bags for the giveaway. It was the largest food drive at the pantry yet, and we are so grateful.
