Just days before Thanksgiving, Rachel’s Table of Western Massachusetts provided area food pantries, shelters and soup kitchens with complete Thanksgiving dinners. On the Monday before Thanksgiving, volunteers brought turkey dinners to Gray House, Open Pantry, Kate’s Kitchen, the Center for Human Development, LaVoz, Tapestry Health, Community Survival Center, the Ronald McDonald House and others. This year, Sweat Power Yoga of East Longmeadow partnered with Rachel’s Table to provide even more Thanksgiving turkeys and all the fixings to Community Survival Center, with help from Arnold’s Meat and Big Y of Longmeadow, which provided the pie. Community activist Daydie Hochberg, z”l, created the Rachel’s Table’s Thanksgiving Fund on her 70th birthday to make sure thousands of Springfield residents who otherwise couldn’t afford it would be able to enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal. Last year, Rachel’s Table provided more than 300 Thanksgiving dinners. This year, the need was even greater – with Rachel’s Table delivering 550 turkeys to local agencies. Shown here, Rachel’s Table volunteers gathering the fixings for some delicious – and appreciated – Thanksgiving meals.
