Sharing Excess & Ya Fav Trashman hosting Thanksgiving food giveaway in West Philly

Local food pop-up provides food to families in need before Thanksgiving

Terrill Haigler, aka “Ya Fav Trashman,” is hosting a pop-up food drive with Sharing Excess in Malcolm X Park tomorrow, Saturday, November 12th. Frozen turkeys and grocery boxes with produce will be provided to community members starting at noon.

Attendees are required to wear a mask for this grab-and-go event, with strict PPE and safety protocols in place for volunteers.

Haigler previously fundraised over $32,000 for PPE for his sanitation worker colleagues during the pandemic, and this initiative continues to give back to the community. As Haigler said, “During this pandemic, I would hate to know that someone is worrying about how they’re going to feed their family.
