A Turkey Trot?! What About a Chicken Run?

Posted on Tuesday, November 20, 2012 by LaurenJoan

Alice and Joanie B. are soooo jealous - of turkeys this time of year.

Alice: Turkeys get all of the attention. Turkey this, turkey that - and now a Turkey Trot?

Joanie B: Ha! Chickens can outrun a trotting turkey every time.

Turkey Trot Champ!

Chicken asking "What about a chicken run?"

Alice: Yeah - see for yourself - is it a Chicken Run or is it a Turkey Trot? Play and watch both videos at the same time  - and you be the judge!


Joanie B: Well, I have to admit - that turkey trot stuff is amazing - especially the fact that the Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties is the trusted leader dedicated to ending local hunger.

Alice: Since its inception in 1974, Second Harvest has become one of the largest food banks in the nation, providing food to an average of nearly one quarter of a million people each month.

Joanie B: The Food Bank mobilizes individuals, companies and community partners to connect people to the nutritious food they need.

Alice: Nearly half of the food distributed is fresh produce. Second Harvest also plays a leading role in promoting federal nutrition programs and educating families on how to make healthier food choices.

Joanie B: Visit to get involved or just sign up for a
