VISTE's 27th Annual Thanksgiving
Meal Delivery

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2023

Join us for VISTE’s 27th Annual Thanksgiving Meal Delivery and help brighten the holidays for seniors in need! This family-friendly event is a local tradition and helps kick off the holiday season. There are numerous ways to participate and to help! Prior to the event we hold the Green Bean Snap and “Operation Cranberry.” In addition, local schoolchildren decorate meal bags and placemats, and others create craft items to share.

On the morning of the event, volunteers prep and pack Thanksgiving meals at the RP Funding Center in Lakeland. In the afternoon, hundreds of volunteer drivers pick up the meals, as well as a beautiful poinsettia and other treats (using convenient drive-through lanes) and deliver to grateful VISTE clients. Volunteer as a family, with friends, or with your colleagues!

THANK YOU to everyone who helps make this annual event a success, including volunteers, community and service groups, local businesses, and individual supporters – we couldn’t do it without YOU! Special thanks to our Title Sponsor Allen and Company, and other event sponsors GEICO, T. Mims Corp, and The Mosaic Company.

To volunteer at the event or if you have any questions, please contact Bethany Masters, Volunteer & Events Manager, at bethany@viste.org or (863) 284-0828, ext 1007.
