Helena Food Share’s annual Thanksgiving meal distribution is set for Sunday and Monday.
The local food bank distributes thousands of holiday meals to families in need every year, and this year’s distributions are scheduled for Sunday at St. Mary’s Catholic Community, 1700 Missoula Ave., and Monday at Helena Food Share’s Lewis Street Pantry, 1616 Lewis St.

Families in need of a Thanksgiving meal are asked to visit the food bank’s website and register to receive one. Those without internet access can call to have their name added to the list.
Helena Food Share Communications Director Patty White said the registration requires a name and household size. Those who register will be given an hour time slot during which to pick up their meal.
White said Friday’s distribution at St. Mary’s is being run entirely by church staff and volunteers and is at capacity.
