🦃  SAVE THE TURKEYS...embrace the cluck! 🐔🐔🐔



This year, Merit Health is partnering with Extra Table to make a delicious and practical switch for Thanksgiving. Instead of distributing turkeys to 62 food pantry partners across the state, Extra Table is opting for chickens! For every turkey that was distributed in the past, THIS YEAR, three whole chickens will be given to a hungry family this holiday season! These chickens are Mississippi-grown birds, making them a fantastic addition to holiday feasts. They're easier to store, EVERYONE knows how to cook a chicken, and the whole birds are easier to distribute, ensuring there is a bird or birds on as many tables as possible this Thanksgiving.



1. Sponsor a Turkey... ah hmmmm... I mean three whole chickens #SAVETHETURKEYS
You can sponsor a trio of birds with a $15 donation.

2. Buy a campaign-themed shirt - $25
The cost of the shirt covers the shirt, printing, and the distribution of THREE WHOLE CHICKENS to a family in need this Thanksgiving. Employees will be able to wear their shirts every Friday throughout the month of November.

OUR GOAL IS TO HAVE 9,000 CHICKENS SPONSORED AND DELIVERED TO OUR PANTRY PARTNERS IN TIME FOR THANKSGIVING. Donate to sponsor a trio of chickens today, buy a shirt, and be a part of this wonderful initiative!
