If a whole bird is not needed or recipients prefer a vegetarian option, Natural Grocers will donate $30 instead.

"Natural Grocers will be donating high-uality naturally raised turkeys to Oregon families in need," Kemper Isely, co-president of Natural Grocers, said in a press release. "The holidays are a special time of year for families, but can be especially difficult for families with limited resources. This buy-one, give-one-free offer is a simple and effective way for our customers to help out another family in a healthy way."

"These are not hard-frozen birds from factory farms,” said Krysti Weddle, Beaverton store manager. “They are naturally raised without antibiotics or growth promoters, and they are delivered just-in-time. Customers who want to take advantage of the buy-one, give-one-free turkey offer need to reserve a turkey now at the store or on our website. We'll take care of the rest."
