TURKEY TALK!

We haven't put up our own Thanksgiving Turkey 101 guide (YET!) but these resources have you covered:

REAL TALK.

We love Thanksgiving (FOOD! FRIENDS!) but it's important to remember this holiday can be especially difficult for food-insecure families, and that it goes hand in hand with some terrible truths about U.S. history.

As you celebrate, we encourage you to also learn about & support organizations working to correct the inequalities in our food system and our country. Here are some resources we've found helpful as we do our own work to be more effective allies:

And here are some resources I recommend if you'd like to help families struggling with hunger this holiday season (PS - you can read about my graduate work on hunger & stigma here):

  • Feeding America is the nation's largest domestic hunger-relief organization. They work with food banks and community programs across the country.
  • Friendsgiving for No Kid Hungry - Turn your Thanksgiving feast into a fundraiser for No Kid Hungry, a national nonprofit that provides food & programming to help the 1 in 6 American children who face hunger. Sign up to host your own dinner and they'll give you all the tools you need!
