Mobile Turkey Unit of Whidbey Island

Delivering free Thanksgiving meals to people on South Whidbey Island, plus Coupeville.

The goal of the Mobile Turkey Unit is to provide a free, home-delivered Thanksgiving meal for people on South Whidbey Island, plus Coupeville, who would otherwise not have one. This includes the elderly, shut-ins, low-income and unemployed people, plus public servant employees working on Thanksgiving day. The event takes place at St. Hubert Roman Catholic Church, Langley United Methodist Church and South Whidbey School District in Langley.

The Mobile Turkey Unit of Whidbey Island is a nonprofit community service organized and provided by volunteers, which has taken place each Thanksgiving since 1999. It was founded by Tom Arhontas, who had a special place in his heart for people in need.



Hot off the press!!

We are so excited to share our 25th anniversary with our community.  We have such deep gratitude to our community support and all of the volunteers who make this possible.  Whether it is peeling potatoes, carving turkeys, packaging rolls, cutting pies, delivering the meals, and much more,  each of you make this possible.  Blessing for this 2023 Thanksgiving!!








If you care that people in need in our community have a free Thanksgiving dinner delivered to their home, we invite you to join our volunteer ranks.

We have many opportunities to serve.
