Feeding families is what we do.

For the fourth year, we are launching our annual food drive to help feed metro-Detroit area families for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Working to make sure every in need family has a full Thanksgiving dinner.


Distributing food from pickups, to packaging, to door step delivery.


Uniting the community to take action with their generosity.


Help make the world a better place.

About Us

Our initiative

Recognizing that the economic impact of COVID-19 has taken a heavy toll on many families in southeastern Michigan, the Jive Turkeys are expanding their reach this year and will feed 500 families, totaling upwards to feed 5000 people across Flint, Pontiac, Highland Park, and the city of Detroit. The Jive Turkeys Detroit is proud to have the Meijer® Corporation as their strategic partner for their 2021 initiative. 

Jive Turkeys Detroit is a non-profit organization of more than 150 members whose motto is “Feeding families is what we do!” In years past, group members shopped, packed, and distributed food for Thanksgiving meals. This year, as they did in 2020, the group will be distributing turkeys along with Meijer gift cards to the 500 families to purchase the necessities for a complete meal.
