This Thanksgiving Day, Hain Celestial's Simon family will join 700 other volunteers at The Bowery Mission to help prepare traditional turkey dinners for homeless New Yorkers.

The Bowery Mission in New York City has served homeless and hungry New Yorkers since 1879 — a tradition that will continue this Thanksgiving Day. On November 24, from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., Irwin D. Simon, founder, president and CEO of The Hain Celestial Group, Inc., and his family will help the mission provide meals to over 5,000 people.

Hain Pure Protein Corporation, Hain Celestial’s affiliate, is contributing 200 vegetarian-fed, antibiotic-free turkeys raised on local family farms; Hain Celestial’s Terra® brand, known for its 100 percent natural exotic vegetable chips, is contributing 2,000 pounds of sweet potatoes; and Hain Celestial is also donating other food items to help provide complete meals in celebration of Thanksgiving Day.

“As the leader of one of the nation’s top natural and organic food companies, I have made it my personal mission to do what I can to see that no one goes hungry — especially children,” Simon says. “I am thankful that Hain Celestial and my family are able to assist The Bowery Mission in this way.”

The Simon family will join nearly 700 other volunteers to prepare traditional turkey dinners and serve guests in the century-old Bowery Mission chapel, which will be decorated for the occasion.  

Meals will be served at 227 Bowery (between Houston and Delancey Streets) at 8 a.m., 10 a.m., 12 p.m., 2 p.m., 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. Each guest will receive a Thanksgiving meal, as well as a new coat and “blessing bag” filled with winter clothes and hygiene items; children will receive toys. Food prepared by The Bowery Mission will also be served at 20 other locations in all five New York City boroughs.
