Q. What happened to the turkeys?

Q. We’ll have two families in our car. Can we get more than one food bag?
A. We can only give one food bag per car. However, if you’d like to get back in line after you’ve gone through once, you are welcome to do so as long as supplies last. (Additionally, if we feel an individual is abusing this, we reserve the right to withhold giving more food to that vehicle.)
Q. I’m unable to get there Saturday morning. Do you have a delivery service?
A. Unfortunately, we cannot offer delivery. Guests must be in-person to receive a food bag.
