Governor Cuomo Announces Partnership with Walmart, Wegmans, FreshDirect and the Coca-Cola Company to Feed Over 35,000 New Yorkers for Thanksgiving

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that New York State is partnering with Walmart, Wegmans, FreshDirect and The Coca-Cola Company this Thanksgiving Week to help deliver meals to feed more than 35,000 people statewide.

“Thanksgiving provides the opportunity both to reflect on what we are grateful for and to give back to our fellow New Yorkers,” Governor Cuomo said. “This partnership will provide families throughout the state with a warm meal to enjoy with loved ones. This week and throughout the holiday season, I encourage all New Yorkers to reach out to their neighbors and find ways to pitch in and help those in need.”

Thanks to generous food donations from Walmart and Wegmans, meals are being assembled and packaged to feed over 35,000 New Yorkers statewide. Each meal includes turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie, vegetables, cranberry sauce and potatoes.

Additionally, The Coca-Cola Company donated over 3,000 beverages, including juice and other drinks, to be distributed with the meals. FreshDirect has provided thousands of boxes to ensure the meals are properly packaged and delivered.

Walmart and the Walmart Foundation’s collaboration with Governor Cuomo and the State of New York this Thanksgiving is part of its overall commitment to assist communities and families throughout the state. Today’s donation of thousands of meals adds to the more than 7.5 million meals the company has donated in New York State so far this fiscal y
