Gobble 4 Good: Help Stephen Center Feed the Hungry by Donating a Turkey or Ham

Stephen Center (www.StephenCenter.org) invites the Omaha community to Gobble 4 Good by donating turkeys and hams to serve those in need.

“Donating a turkey or ham makes a difference in the lives of vulnerable and hungry individuals and families for the holidays, and throughout the year,” Executive Director Michael Wehling said. “Our amazing kitchen staff utilize hundreds of hams and turkeys to provide delicious, high protein meals year-round.”

In 2020, Stephen Center provided over 200,000 meals to individuals overcoming homelessness, addiction, and poverty. Donated turkeys and hams are also shared with local pantries to help meet community needs.

Turkey and ham donations can be brought to the Stephen Center Donation Dock, 2723 Q St. (located off the alley between 27th and 28th Streets), between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and noon through 4 p.m. on the weekends.
