Fry Out Cancer is a Thanksgiving initiative honoring, recognizing, and supporting the amazing team of healthcare professionals at The James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. Free turkeys are also distributed to local food pantries and shelters to provide their clients with a Thanksgiving meal. Since 2014, Fry Out Cancer has raised more than $83,000 for cancer-related charities.


Join Besa and Fry Out Cancer to provide food to our neighbors in crisis. As a volunteer, you'll pick up cooked turkeys and, using your own car, deliver them to local organizations providing food to families in need. Fry Out Cancer will provide an overview and route delivery instructions. 


Volunteers are required to bring their own face masks and must be worn at all times. Social distancing will be observed. Limited interaction will take place during this volunteer event.


The health and safety of volunteers is a priority. If you are sick, over the age of 60, or have a chronic health condition, it is in your best interest to stay home. Click here for more information about COVID-19.
