EUGENE, Ore. -- More than 1,000 families in Lane County will have food on the table this Thanksgiving, thanks to the help of several local churches and organizations.

Volunteers started putting together 1,400 meal boxes on Sunday, filling them with all the food needed for a traditional Thanksgiving meal.

On Tuesday, they added a turkey, pie crust, rolls and butter. They're being delivered to local churches and organizations, who will give them to families in need.

This project is organized by One Hope Network. Executive Director Steve Buss said it's something they look forward to every year.


"The reason we do it every year is because we love seeing the community work together...This year, there are 55 churches and organizations working together pull this off. That's what we delight in...just to see that collaboration and reaching more people to make Thanksgiving a little bit better," said Buss. 

He said they partner with neighborhood schools and the Department of Human Services to identify families who need the boxes most.
