Saratoga County residents who may need a hand this Thanksgiving are encouraged to reach out to Saratoga County Economic Opportunity Council (EOC).

EOC provides over 800 Thanksgiving baskets each year to neighbors in need. Each basket contains fresh produce, including potatoes, apples and carrots, as well as the staples every Thanksgiving meal needs like stuffing and gravy. A gift card is also provided to help buy a turkey. These baskets are available to families who will have two or more people for dinner.

Households with one person are encouraged to call EOC at 518-288-3206 and sign up for a delivered Thanksgiving meal. A full Thanksgiving dinner will also be available at EOC’s Soup Kitchen housed at the Presbyterian New England Congregational Church located at 24 Circular St. in Saratoga. Everyone is always welcome at the soup kitchen.
