About

Through the Years

In 2009, God planted our mission of providing an entire Thanksgiving meal for 500 families for Thanksgiving.  Through over 500 volunteers and trust in God, we were able to provide the food necessary, money for the turkeys and $5 for each recipient!
In 2010, God proved himself worthy of all of our praise once again! Through the tireless effort of our volunteers, we were able to raise the food and funds necessary for another 500 meals at Thanksgiving.
In 2011, we upped the challenge to include TWO of every side item in the box. That’s 1,000 items on top of the 500 Turkeys!
In 2012, the bar was raised again by God’s provision of extra boxes and collections that helped us feed nearly 600 families.
In 2013, our goal  was to feed 700+ Northern Indiana families in need.  That goal was met with the grace and support of our community.
2014, we set the goal & the community made it possible to feed 912 total families!
2015, God provided more than we could have imagined or hoped for.  With generous donors, a larger location and even more volunteers, we graciously served 1,100 families.
2016 was all God!  We set a goal and He knocked it out of the park with 1,300 families served! What a blessing to be able to help so many.  What concern that the need is so great.  Join us in prayer for those in need and that we will do what we can to help.
2017 promised to glorify God by helping at least 1,300 families in our community.  With some major last minute help, we ended up with enough resources to bless 1,500!
We celebrated our 10th year in 2018 by serving 1,550 families a full box of food to take home and prepare for their families.  We had a record year in food collection and giving to make that happen.  Thanks to all the volunteers who took part in each event 500 Turkeys held.  We believe that the Lord brings each guest and each volunteer to us to LOVE.
2019 was Gods biggest year yet serving 1700 families in our NW Indiana community.  We started out with a plan to feed 1500 but God provided the way to serve more.  We are always ready for His call.
2020 brings new changes to all our lives.  500 Turkeys is committed to the mission of Feeding Families Food & Faith.  We don’t yet know how that will look but we are faithful to Gods calling.  We would love for you to join us in the journey.
I am only one, but still I AM ONE. I cannot do everything, but still I CAN DO SOMETHING. And because I cannot do everything, I will NOT refuse to do something that I CAN DO.
