The Food Bank of Nevada County had more than 400 turkeys on hand Tuesday morning to give out to anyone in need of food for Thanksgiving.
John Candelaria, the Food Bank’s executive director, hopes the “drive-thru” turkey giveaway will become an annual tradition.
“I just want to make sure everybody in the county gets a turkey for Thanksgiving,” Candelaira said. “That’s my mission.”
Volunteers were on deck at the Grass Valley Seventh-day Adventist Church to pass out turkeys to community members through their car windows, which allowed the Food Bank to maintain a steady flow throughout the distribution effort.
