About Turkey Express
For over 20 years, Turkey Express has been serving those in need in WNY by providing home-cooked Thanksgiving meals. In correlation with Meals on Wheels of WNY, the Buffalo City Mission is able to deliver over 5,500 meals each Thanksgiving to individuals who either cannot make meals for themselves, or do not have the funds to do so. Here at the Mission, it is our goal to show the love of Jesus Christ to the homeless and hurting in Western New York, and we take part in doing so to those outside of our facility during our Turkey Express event.
