The Coastal Bend Food Bank’s Thanksgiving turkey giveaway is still happening, but will look different this year

Despite the coronavirus pandemic the Coastal Bend Food bank will still be hosting their annual thanksgiving turkey giveaway.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Despite the coronavirus pandemic local organizations are continuing to make plans to help those in need. The Coastal Bend Food Bank's partners are certainly in that group.

This year the food bank's agencies will continue their annual Thanksgiving turkey giveaway to families who register ahead of time.

Like most things this year, the giveaway will look a bit different. The food bank used a drive-thru and curbside pickup process. 

“We are going to serve probably as many turkeys as we had last year, we want to make sure that families especially this difficult year, have the ability to celebrate the one holiday that we celebrate around the table and the turkey is the center of that celebration,” said Executive Director of the Coastal Bend Food Bank, Bea Hanson.
