Halloween’s over and Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away. It’s time to start thinking about your holiday plans! We’ve pinpointed what you can do to get ready for this Thanksgiving in and around South Jersey.
It’s especially important around the holidays to support your community. We have a few ways you can get involved.
Food Bank of South Jersey
In preparation for the holiday season, the Food Bank is accepting frozen turkeys at November 18 between 9am and 3pm. Non-perishable items like canned cranberry sauce, box stuffing and mash potato mix will also be accepted.
As always, local business and residents are encouraged to collect food to help our their community. Interested in hosting a food drive? Visit this link.
Once the temperature drops, clothing donations sites are always looking for warm clothing, especially coats for kids and adults. Think about donating your coats and jackets that you don’t plan on wearing this season, or picking up an extra one when you’re out at a store.
Pick Up Your Pie
Who wants to spend all week in the kitchen prepping for thanksgiving day desserts? Pick up a pie (no one will know the difference!) at one of these local pie shops!
Pie Lady in Moorestown is a must for all your Thanksgiving pie needs. They start taking Thanksgiving orders on November 1 so hurry in before the pies are all gone! Pumpkin, chocolate pecan, and apple crumb are on our list.
Johnson’s Corner Farm
Johnson’s Corner Farm is running “Pieville” this Thanksgiving, meaning you don’t need to pre-order your pie. They’ll be fully stocked the week leading up to Thanksgiving. With hours Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday 8am-7pm and Thursday 8am to 12noon, you’ll have plenty of time to stock up on your favorite pies. Need sides as well? They have you covered. They are offering all the classics: gravy, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and mac & cheese.
Try out this Collingswood bake shop for locally sourced ingredients in their pies, breakfast sandwiches, and other baked goods. The chicken biscuit is a crowd-pleaser.
