If that’s a picture of Albert Haynesworth standing in front of a mountain of turkeys — and it is — then it must be the day of the Harris Teeter-Redskins Harvest Feast Presented By Ryan Homes. This is the third Harvest Feast I’ve attended (the eighth year it has been held), and it impresses me every single year: more than 3,500 turkeys are distributed to Prince George’s County residents in need by members of the Redskins and 400 corporate volunteers.
“It’s estimated that this will feed 21,000 Prince George’s County residents in need,” Tanya Snyder — wife of owner Daniel Snyder — explained.
It’s an enormous undertaking, and a huge stretch of the concourse at FedExField is broken down into stations for people to walk through and receive bags of dry goods, of kids food, of produce, and — at the end — a turkey.
