Every November on the Sunday before Thanksgiving, we host our annual Thanksgiving Feast-i-val for 100 children and families at Hill Country Barbecue Market in NYC!
The kids enjoy dancing to music played by DJ Clientele, face painting by Kooky the Clown, and crafting a unique piece of art before eating a delicious Thanksgiving meal.
As an extra special treat, each child receives a goody bag filled with cool items such as dessert from Hill Country, Felix t-shirts, crayons and journals, books, and more!
This year, in place of the in-person feast, we teamed up with our amazing friends at Hill Country Barbecue Market to keep our Thanksgiving tradition alive for the kids!
On the Sunday before Thanksgiving, the Hill Country team delivered 400 meals including turkey, mac and cheese, and pumpkin pie to Felix youth and families from the Mott Haven Academy Charter School and Good Shepherd Services teen residence homes.
We are grateful to everyone who collaborated to make this possible for our community when they needed it the most. Our families were thrilled!
