FISH OF SANCAP offers a Holiday Meal Basket to families during the holiday as part of their Holiday Programming. Baskets are offered to households who are known to FISH through participation in other programs or referred by community members. Last year FISH holiday meals fed over 1200 neighbors for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays combined, and FISH expects an increase this year.
Thanks to donors, community partners and volunteers, baskets of food including vegetables, traditional holiday sides, holiday ‘goodies’ and a gift card to purchase a protein of choice will be assembled and distributed just in time for the holiday. Basket distribution for the Christmas holiday will take place from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on December 21st-23rd. Those receiving baskets are encouraged to make an appointment for pick up. Delivery may be arranged on a case-by-case basis.
“Many haven’t caught up from lost hours and reduced earning opportunities since the beginning of the pandemic,” says Maria Espinoza, Assistant Executive Director, FISH. “We hope to take some of the financial burden off while focusing on the spirit of the holiday by providing a food basket with all the fixings for a wonderful holiday meal.”
If you or a family you know is in need of a Holiday Food Basket, please contact FISH at 239-472-4775. Additional assistance around the holiday includes Adopt-A-Family, Toy Drive, and Smile Boxes with a special senior gift included. For more information, please contact FISH.
