Community Thanksgiving Feast Has New Look

Westport’s Thanksgiving Community Feast is a longstanding town — and interfaith — tradition.

It’s tough to commit to this year, as COVID lingers. But it’s too good to give up, even for one November.

Organizers want to continue the community spirit. And they remain committed to combatting food insecurity.

So they’re inviting households needing food support to request assistance by completing a confidential request form, or calling 203-666-9804.  Requests will be fulfilled on a first-come, first-serve basis, through gift cards.

The Thanksgiving Feast Fund is managed by Saugatuck Congregational Church — longtime host of the in-person event — and made possible by community donations.

The event will include homemade cards from Coleytown Elementary School, pies from Temple Israel, and home-baked bread from Bedford Middle School.

Organizers hope people who have volunteered for past Thanksgiving Feasts — and those who have not, too! — will consider a financial contribution, to cover costs of gift cards and future Thanksgiving community gatherings.

Donations are welcome. Click here; then click on the green button, and choose “Thanksgiving Feast.”

Westport’s Community Thanksgiving Feast will look different this year.

  1. Who will feed our shelter residents and those in need who are too proud to fill out a form or not willing to share personal information? What will happen with those who have nowhere else to go?
