Give Thanks 2017


Home Sweet Home Ministries was founded on Thanksgiving Day in 1917 when it opened its doors to all those in need to enjoy a warm meal. Now in 2017, the tradition continues on. This year Home Sweet Home and Midwest Food Bank plan to distribute 2,000 Thanksgiving meal boxes. Home Sweet Home will also provide 600 home delivered meals and 150 in-house meals on Thanksgiving Day. Hundreds of volunteers, along with Midwest Food Bank, Hy-Vee, and Schnucks, will help us gather the essential food to ensure the success of this effort.

We have plenty of people in need of our help this holiday season and we need your support! The list below includes what will be provided in each of our Thanksgiving meal baskets. You can bring items to Home Sweet Home Ministries anytime at 303 East Oakland Avenue in Bloomington.
