Shop today for West Seattle Food Bank turkey dropoff at Easy Street on Wednesday

Going grocery shopping in the next few days? You might not be ready to buy your Thanksgiving turkey yet, but it’s the perfect time to shop for one (or more) to donate to the West Seattle Food Bank – which has a special donation event coming up this Wednesday (November 20th) in The Junction. The announcement:

The West Seattle Food Bank is looking for 500 donated 10 lb. turkeys to help all of our clients in need have a delicious turkey on their table for Thanksgiving. It’s even more difficult now, with the recent SNAP (Food Stamp) cuts, for our clients to provide healthy meals for their families. Help us by bringing a frozen 10-pound turkey to Easy Street Records in the Junction, Wednesday, 11/20, 4-7 pm! No need to park – we’ll be outside, ready to grab your turkey, or donate cash and we’ll buy the turkey for you! PLEASE HELP US provide all of our clients with a happy Thanksgiving meal!

If you would rather give money than a turkey, WSFB’s Judi Yazzolino tells WSB that $10 is their approximate cost for a 10-pound turkey. They’re asking for that size because “we have a lot of single people and small families, and it’s easier for us to store.” (You can also donate $ online – just go here.)

    10-pound turkeys are rare birds–usually the lighter weight cheap turkeys are pretty well picked over.

    As usual, QFC has the best turkey deal though it didn’t come out until today–$30 grocery spend and 0.59 cents/lb (with card, natch). Safeway is second best (0.69 cents/lb with a $50 spend with card).

    I usually buy one $1.49/lb turkey at 16-20 lbs and then throw in some groceries to make the $30 buy and then end up donating 4 birds. Oddly enough Freddie’s doesn’t offer the same deal, only QFC. Both are owned by Kroger.

Sorry, comment time is over.
