BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. – Families and individuals searching for a place to share in a Thanksgiving meal or pick up a holiday turkey still have a few choices leading into the holiday.

At least one major turkey and food giveaway will take place Wednesday at the Chabad of the Space and Treasure Coast center in Viera, according to News 6 partners Florida Today.


“This is for everyone, our chance to give back for Thanksgiving,” Rabbi Zvi Konikov said of the drive-thru event.

On Tuesday, Mt. Moriah Missionary Baptist Church in Melbourne delivered dozens of turkeys and chickens along with fresh vegetable and holiday fixings to residents in a drive-thru giveaway.
