The Hungry Turkey is proud to support Operation Food Search. There are two ways in which OFS benefits: through FUNDS raised and FOOD collected. Funds are raised through generous donations by participants and businesses during the registration process. Food is collected in the form of non-perishable canned goods at any Big River Running Company store. Click here to view a list of most requested items.
