What is “Thanksgiving in July”?
Thanksgiving in July (TGIJ) is a county-wide food drive that mobilizes the community to collect food and raise funds to help fill the shelves during the busy months of summer. All funds from the Turkey Trot will benefit NLCP and local families during TGIJ. TGIJ was created over a decade ago by Mercy Iowa City (Chef Ron Hall) and Hawkeye Foodservice Distribution.
