Thanksgiving is about gratefulness for family and God’s blessings in our lives.  For over 25 years, the Waunakee Ecumenical Board has been blessing struggling community families with Thanksgiving Food Boxes containing all the items for a Thanksgiving meal.  Each year 150 families receive a Thanksgiving Food Box to enjoy with their family. Food boxes contain whole roaster chicken, potatoes, onions, squash, items for green bean casserole, corn, apples, cranberry and pumpkin pie! Individuals and businesses help sponsor this project.  Volunteers help assemble the food boxes and deliver them to community members.  In 2020, with concerns about volunteers and large gatherings, our program has changed slightly and families will receive a gift card to a local grocery store.  We plan to resume our regular program in upcoming years.
