“When I’m wearing my turkey suit I like to say ‘is it hot in here because I’m roasting,’” Farrenkopf said. “My wife made my turkey suit and I go from business to business and stop citizens on the street with a cornucopia, a horn of plenty. I ask people to put in a dollar or two and the money will go to the food banks.”
The money will stay in the town it is raised; in Hamilton it will go to Haven House, in Stevensville it will go to Pantry Partners and in Darby, the Darby Bread box.
“The funds will go to your town’s food bank,” Farrenkopf said. “The food banks can buy anything they need. Not everyone has a chance to drop off a can of food so the turkey goes around and makes donating easier.”
This is the third year of the Turkey Trot and Farrenkopf said that if you see the turkey, dig deep.
