The organization also distributed 2,500 bags of assorted MONAT products, as well as essential and toiletry items like toothpaste, soap, socks and more, valued at $100 each, to attendees.
"Feast with Gratitude is more important than ever this year, and my heart is full every time I see it come to life," said Lu Urdaneta, CEO, MONAT Gratitude. "It was always our dream to do something special to help meet the needs in our community during Thanksgiving season, and the fact that we can see this event evolving, growing and touching more people each year makes me so happy and proud of our organization. MONAT employees, leaders, market partners and customers make our company great, and I can’t wait to see how our feast event will keep on giving and impacting lives in the future."
This year’s event marks the third-annual Feast with Gratitude reimagined to ensure 2020 safety precautions like social distancing and mask-wearing.
