When Branches first began its Thanksgiving Meal Delivery in 2001, Branches and a few dozen volunteers delivered over 600 meals. In 2019, more than 900 volunteers came together at seven sites throughout Miami-Dade and Broward Counties to cook, package and deliver 5,250 meals to individuals and families in need. Most importantly, each delivery included a large tri-lingual pamphlet which included information about available programs at Branches and other free community resources. THANK YOU to all our sponsors and volunteers for making this holiday special for so many underserved individuals and families.

Branches has been proudly serving the South Florida community on Thanksgiving Day since 2001. Our staff partners with dozens of agencies that help identify clients who would otherwise be hungry and alone on what otherwise is a very special holiday. Congregations, community groups, businesses and individual volunteers help us collect food and prepare the meals. We also deliver these hot meals to families’ homes along with large trilingual info pamphlets about how they can access Branches services and other programs to help them become more financially stable. The goal is to provide hope and opportunities for everyone involved; volunteers and recipients alike. THANK YOU for your faithful support!
