Turkey giveaways in NYC ahead of Thanksgiving: Full list

Local News

NEW YORK — NYCHA residents on the Lower East Side were treated to 1,500 free turkeys and chickens on Monday as part of a holiday giveaway.

The door-to-door event was hosted by Vision Urbana, a nonprofit organization that serves the neighborhood. Vision Urbana Executive Director Eric Diaz said his group does this work year round.

“Vision Urbana has been the only pantry that was open during the entire pandemic, providing groceries every week,” said Diaz. 

It’s the third year Vision Urbana has focused on making sure families in NYCHA get a turkey before thanksgiving.
