Thanksgiving Dinner in a Box -  North County Lifeline - Vista -11/20

About North County Lifeline: Lifeline’s Communities in Action program promotes self-sufficiency and supports individuals and families to strive towards economic stability, empowerment, and connection.

Project: Bless a family and give them a chance to celebrate one of the most cherished holidays that many of us take for granted.  Provide them with the groceries to make Thanksgiving dinner a reality (turkey and all the sides). Fresh items are preferred as much as possible, but non-perishables will work as well.  The meals will be given directly to the Lifeline families.

Cost:  Cost of the groceries.  Use the suggested list below to provide a holiday dinner.

What size family?  A typical family of five (5).

Groups or Individuals:  This project is great for Life Groups or individuals.  If you’re an individual, you might grab your friends or family to help with the expense of the meal.

Deliver: Monday, November 20th, 8:00am – 5pm to the Lifeline Vista Campus (642 Vista Village Drive, Vista 92084).  After the meal is delivered, the caseworkers will deliver the meal to the family.

Pack:  Package the dinner in boxes or reusable grocery bags to make it easier for transport. Feel free to decorate to make it festive, add a card of good wishes, or provide a grocery gift card for additional ingredients.

  • Fresh Turkey – 10 lbs or more
