To help ensure homeless, displaced and disadvantaged high school students don’t go hungry this Thanksgiving, Project 150 is distributing 1,000 holiday meal boxes to help feed Southern Nevadan high school students and their families.

The Las Vegas nonprofit serves more than 6,300 local homeless, disadvantaged and displaced high school students and their families.

You can help support the Holiday Meal Program with a contribution of just $25, which will provide a meal that feeds a family of four.

From Nov. 16 to Nov. 20, Project 150 Thanksgiving meal boxes will be available for pick up at Project 150’s office at 3600 N. Rancho Drive.

To reserve a meal, families must register by calling (702) 721-7150 to receive an e-ticket and pick-up instructions. Quantities are limited. Project 150 staff members are available by phone to answer any questions.

Each meal box feeds a family of four and contains a full Thanksgiving feast, including turkey, vegetables and stuffing.

Project 150 plans to distribute another 1,000 meals boxes before Christmas. Monetary donations of all levels are encouraged. Gift cards to grocery stores are also being accepted and can a be dropped off at Project 150. Donations for the holiday meal program are being accepted through the end of the year.
