All Faiths Food Bank turkey distributions delayed by Nicole
UPDATED Nov. 9 to add postponement of events due to weather.
SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - All Faiths Food Bank has delayed their annual distribution of turkeys and food for the holidays to families in need because of concerns over Tropical Storm Nicole.
The planned Nov. 9 distribution of frozen turkeys and side dishes at Ed Smith Stadium, 2700 12th St., Sarasota, has been pushed back to Thursday, Nov. 17, from 4-6 p.m.
Another turkey distribution will be held – in partnership with The Bay Sarasota – on Saturday, Nov. 19, at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall (777 N. Tamiami Tr., Sarasota) from 9-11 a.m.
Through Thanksgiving, additional turkey distributions will take place at several of All Faiths Food Bank’s mobile pantry sites as well as through numerous partner agency locations, including school pantries and youth-serving nonprofits.
The nonprofit expects to distribute 13,000 turkeys and 3.6 million holiday meals this year.
Proof of Sarasota County residency is required.
