What would Thanksgiving be without the giving? After 10 years of business on Fulton St. we know that we’ve got a lot to be thankful for: delicious food, delightful coworkers, and of course what would we be without the incredible Fort Greene community!
This year we have the unique opportunity to give back. We’ve teamed up with the Fort Greene & Farragut Fresh Pantry to donate turkeys to 61 local families in need. We’ve set our goals high, but are confident in our ability, with the help of our community, to procure 854 lbs of turkey! While we can’t do it alone, The Greene Grape has committed to matching 50% of every dollar raised in this Great Gobble Giveaway, but we need your help.
Who will be getting these turkeys?
The Fort Greene & Farragut Fresh Pantry gives about 10,000 pounds of fresh produce to the community each year. In addition, they work with local businesses and residents to provide the community with Thanksgiving turkeys. This year, they have asked us to help extend their turkey donation with 61 birds to help provide for families living at the The Emerson Davis Family Center. This local organization offers housing, child care, medical, and mental health services. Emerson-Davis is a transitional family preservation and reunification program designed to serve parents with histories of homelessness and mental illness, and their families.
