BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Thanksgiving is right around the corner and some Vermonters are finalizing a menu. But for other people, the holiday season can put extra pressure on their budget.

Feeding Chittenden is trying to help ease the holiday strain. They are starting their annual Thanksgiving food drive as part of their Holidays without Hunger Campaign. Staff and volunteers began distributing turkeys and holiday sides on Tuesday from their N. Winooski Avenue Food Access Center.

“If you’re worried about how you’re going to set the table this holiday season, come on down. We will be supplying that until we run out, but we will continue this right up until the day before Thanksgiving,” said the group’s Anna McMahon.

Their goal is to feed 10,000 families this holiday season.
