Hopeful Harvest

Hopeful Harvest is one of UP Orlando's signature Hand Up events, where our income-verified Gold Card Member Share Grocery Program members can sign up to receive a full Thanksgiving meal (turkey included!) for a small $5 fee.

This event is meant to give our members a dignified Thanksgiving dinner that can be prepared in their own home with their families. Hopeful Harvest will take place on Tuesday November 24, 2020. 

The general public can help with this event by donating non-perishable Thanksgiving items listed below:
-Boxed mashed potatoes
-Dry gravy mix
-Canned green beans
-Canned yams/sweet potatoes/pumpkin
-Boxed stuffing mix Canned cranberry sauce
-Boxed cornbread mix

Donations can be dropped off at the UP Orlando campus during regular MSGP hours at the volunteer building. Volunteers are needed prior to the event to sort donations and assemble meal packages, and on the day of the event to distribute the Thanksgiving meal packages for our members.
