Fueling an American Tradition: Turkey Distributions

Every Thanksgiving, millions of families across the country gather around their tables and enjoy a delicious turkey meal. For many families, however, the cost of participating in the joy of the holiday is unfortunately too high. That’s why every November, Islamic Relief USA hosts turkey distributions in cities across the country. Our packages include not only turkey, but various different sides for families struggling with food insecurity to enjoy together. 

This year, our turkey distributions will take place across 19 states and 41 cities, servicing 125,000 people in need! Donate now and help feed a family in need.

Focus on the United States

Racial inequity, homelessness, poverty, and the effects of climate change are just a few issues Americans face on a daily basis. And now, inflation is on the rise as food and gas prices are soaring, exacerbating an already difficult circumstance for families across the country.

As Islam teaches us, charity starts at home, and that’s why Islamic Relief USA is dedicated to supporting work across the US that provides families with the tools to succeed.

A few of our interventions across the US include: 

  • Distributing hot meals and food boxes to alleviate food insecurity 
  • Providing free health services to vulnerable communities
  • Day of Dignity events, a community-based initiative that works to provide low-income and homeless individuals with access to essential services and resources such as food, hygiene kits, medical screening, resume building, and financial advice
  • Deploying our Disaster Management Team and volunteers to support survivors in areas hit by devastation, including families across Florida affected by Hurricane Idalia
