  • November – Torklift Central Turkey Drive

    In 2011, the Kent Food Bank lost the majority of their funding for the holiday season, leaving many households scrambling to find ways to feed their families. This deeply impacted the community and Torklift Central responded by organizing the 1st Annual Kent Turkey Challenge. Since then, donations to the Kent Food Bank from the Annual Kent Turkey Challenge total thousands of dollars for turkey purchase and thousands of pounds of non - perishable food, feeding thousands of families that would otherwise go without a Thanksgiving meal.
