A Fool Proof Formula to a Perfect Thanksgiving

The turkey is roasting, hot cider is brewing, the fire is crackling, pumpkin pie is baking and the whole family is reunited around the dinner table for a fun field evening of joy and thankfulness. However, there is a side effect of Thanksgiving. Most encounter that moment between belt popping full and heading into a food coma like state. This is greatly to be considered to be the best time of the year! Except, for that one neighbor who puts Christmas decorations up in early November and before Thanksgiving has even begun.

This is the time of year where we all reflect on what we are thankful for and give compassion to those who are less fortunate around us. That is the purpose behind giving thanks, so that we may peel away what we have and unveil what others do not.

Last week was National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week. It is held each year the week before Thanksgiving, the perfect time to show compassion to those who are experiencing hunger and homelessness. The purpose behind this coalition is to bring awareness to the community but also promote the fight against hunger and homelessness. Communities and organizations came together for events such as, "One Night without a Home."

Aleph Group Inc. is located in Riverside, CA and right in our neighborhood is an organization where there primary goal is to restore health and provide hope. Health to Hope Clinics takes part in medical outreach services and urban community action projects. Last week they hosted "One Night without a Home." Through the great efforts of the Riverside community and the team at Health to Hope Clinics, the event was an inspiring achievement to bring awareness and the fight against hunger and homelessness.

AGI knows the struggles of hunger and homelessness throughout our community and the globe. We want to do our part and take action against the causes. The design and manufacturing of mobile kitchens alleviate the struggles for homeless to travel to a fixed facility and brings the food to them. Also, attached to every specialty vehicle is the Feeding Angels initiative. Every time we sell a mobile unit, a portion of the proceeds will go to feed a food insecure child three meals a day for an entire year.

So where does that fool proof formula come into play? It was unraveled right before you. The formula to a perfect Thanksgiving is to;

  • enjoy your family and friends 
  • give thanks
  • give compassion to others
  • and do not forget to enjoy all the food and amenities that go along with it.
