Join the Food Bank for Tour de Turkey!

We’ve seen an unprecedented demand since 2019. This 2022 season, we anticipate that trend continuing. We will need thousands of turkeys for Larimer County families.

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

With two locations — soon to be announced for the 2022 drive —there’s something for everyone. All the fun happens Thursday, November 17, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. So grab a frozen turkey and stay tuned for details to help make a difference this holiday season!


Like the Fort Collins Tour de Turkey, the first 250 turkey donors in Loveland receive a coupon good for a 6-pack of beer at New Belgium curbside pickup*. We’ll also have several $50 New Belgium prize packages to give away.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I donate a frozen turkey before Nov. 18?

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.

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.
