INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — This November, Project MANA will help hundreds of families have a happy and healthy Thanksgiving holiday through its annual Let’s Talk Turkey event in North Lake Tahoe and Truckee.

Each community member who signs up and attends a distribution will be able to bring home a whole turkey, fresh produce, and other fixings for a fantastic holiday meal.

The complete Let’s Talk Turkey distribution schedule is as follows:

In 2014, more than 300 local families received turkeys through Project MANA’s Let’s Talk Turkey Food Distributions.

Thanks to generous donations from the community, Project MANA can continue the Let’s Talk Turkey program in 2015 for families in North Tahoe and Truckee.

Project MANA is accepting donations of the following items: canned yams, canned sweet potatoes, canned pumpkin, canned apple sauce, canned green beans, gravy, stuffing mix, shelf-stable milk, and 10-12 pound frozen turkeys.
