Although it may feature less extended family and friends, Thanksgiving dinner might actually mean a little more this year. After all of the hardships of 2020, sitting down around the table with your loved ones and reflecting on what you’re all thankful for will undoubtedly carry a bit more weight. 

Avoid worrying about finding the perfect turkey and focus on what really matters — spending time with your family. Check out these local Seattle resources to get your Thanksgiving meal shopping done quickly and efficiently while supporting your community.
