Join the Food Bank for Tour de Turkey!

We’ve seen an unprecedented demand since 2019. This 2023 season, we anticipate that trend continuing. We will need thousands of turkeys for Larimer County families. Help us make sure everyone in our community gets a hearty holiday meal.

You can take part in a turkey drive unlike any other.

We have two locations this year: Drake Centre in Fort Collins and the Orchards Shopping Center in Loveland. All the fun happens Thursday, November 17, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. The first 250 donors at each location will receive a New Belgium gift token, and more New Belgium prizes will be given out throughout the day. So grab a frozen* turkey or ham and come by to experience the energy of a community working together!

Make sure they’re frozen solid so we can safely distribute them to families in need of support.

New Belgium Goodies

The first 250 donors at both the Fort Collins and Loveland locations receive a coupon good for a 6-pack of beer at New Belgium*. We’ll also have several $50 New Belgium prize packages to give away.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I donate a frozen turkey before the big collection event?
Absolutely! We’re accepted frozen turkeys anytime. Click here for a list of donation times and locations.

Are you ONLY accepting turkeys? What about hams or chickens?
This is a turkey drive, but this year we’re also on the lookout for frozen hams, and whole frozen chickens—our goal is to help as many households as possible enjoy a holiday meal this year. If you can bring a turkey, that’s ideal, but hams and chickens are also a huge help. Bring what you can!

Does the turkey REALLY have to be frozen?
Yup! In order to ensure safe transportation and distribution to Larimer County residents, please make sure everything is frozen solid when you drop it off.

I’m unable to get there and donate a turkey. Would a financial donation help?
Financial donations are, of course, always a great way to participate if you can’t be here for the big day. Click here to offer your support.
