Holiday Food Baskets

Holiday Food Basket signup has ended

Update as of December 16, 2022: Signups for winter holiday food baskets have ended. For any questions about enrollment status, please contact [email protected] We may have extra baskets available after we distribute them on Saturday, December 17. If you didn’t receive a basket and would like to see if there are any extras available, please come at 1 p.m. Saturday, December 17 to CAPSC’s office at 10 Cold Spring Manor in Rochester.

Every year, CAPSC provides Thanksgiving and winter holiday food baskets to those in need. Hundreds of baskets are distributed each year. Our baskets are filled with a variety of items that will fill a holiday table and lift the hearts of our neediest families.

What’s in the basket?

Our typical holiday basket includes nutritious foods that will provide a complete holiday meal for a family of four, and will include items such as:

  • Whole frozen turkeys (or a gift card equivalent)
  • Stuffing mix
  • Gravy mix
  • Cookie or dessert mixes
  • Cans of sweet potatoes or green beans
  • Fresh vegetables

Note: Exact contents may vary based on supply.
