Holiday Food Box Program

  • Thanksgiving and Christmas Food Boxes are available upon request through a partnership between the Town and COS of the Kennebunks. The online application has been closed but will reopen during the next Holiday Season. 
  • Individuals and families in our community can request these food boxes which offers you the ability to cook a full holiday meal at home. These food boxes are provided to Kennebunk residents and will not include additional food if you choose to host a meal during the Holidays.
  • They are delivered by volunteers right to you at home the week of each holiday. 
  • We will email you the date & timeframe of delivery. If you do not have email, we will call to inform you of the delivery details. the specific date and timeframes will be emailed to you. 

Thanksgiving Dinner Options

  • Project Pilgrim is an annual complimentary Thanksgiving Day dinner hosted by Community Harvest. In years past, this offered an opportunity for community members to come together to share food and company at St. Martha's Church. Due to the on-going COVID-19 Pandemic, Community Harvest is offering curbside pick-up and delivery options only rather than hosting a sit-down meal in the community.  Please complete this form or call Community Harvest at (207) 967-1911.
  • The West Kennebunk Village Committee will be hosting a free Thanksgiving Day meal from 12PM - 2PM at the Dorothy Stevens Community Center.
