The Coming to the Rescue hearts of the volunteers continue to make it possible for Big Heart Brigade to provide the less fortunate a meal at Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving 2018 brought the 25th year serving the communities within Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, Okeechobee and Broward Counties. Nearly 3,500 volunteers generated 50,000 individual meals and 1,350 meals at 11 family-style locations. BHB prepared 1,666 turkeys, 23,000 lbs. of fresh green beans from Belle Glade, turkey gravy, cranberry sauce and cornbread stuffing for each meal.
Together, with our sponsors, partner organizations and volunteers, nearly 2 million meals have been distributed over the past 25+ years. Big Heart Brigade is thankful to the volunteers, sponsors, and partners who make this annual event a success.
