Thanksgiving is one of the most meaningful times of the year for many households. It is a time for families, friends, and communities to come together over a hot meal and celebrate each other. At Fresh Truck, we are proud of the role we play as a reliable resource for the fresh, healthy ingredients that will be on the Thanksgiving tables of thousands of Boston families.

Every holiday season our schedule is jam packed with community events and turkey giveaways to get as much fresh food as possible to Bostonians that need it most. Here are the some of the highlights:

  • We’re currently wrapping up our four-month long partnership with athenahealth, as part of their “Together We Grow” campaign. By Thanksgiving, we’ll have provided a week’s worth of fresh fruits and veggies to nearly 1,000 families across Massachusetts.
  • Yesterday, volunteers from Trip Advisor prepared nearly 500 Thanksgiving meal kits that will be distributed to Boston families thanks to our friends at Camp Harbor View, the Charles Street AME Church, and United Housing.
  • That’s all on top of our weekly markets, where we’re expecting to see nearly 3,000 shoppers in the month of November! This month, we’ll sell roughly 4,500 tomatoes, 4,000 apples, 3,000 potatoes and sweet potatoes, and 2,500 yellow and red onions.

This Thanksgiving, Fresh Truck is especially thankful for our hardworking, caring, and empathetic partners across Boston. Whether it comes in the form of a saved parking spot, neighborhood flyers, volunteer hours, or moral support, our partners are always there to support us and we could not do this work without them. They’re the apples of our eye! Who or what are you thankful for this time of year? Let us know in the comments!
