Berkshire County is definitely a prime place to celebrate Thanksgiving. Think about it. The Berkshire community comes together and is there for one another when times are tough. We look out for one another and appreciate each other's company. The term for this as coined by State Representative Smitty Pignatelli is "Be Berkshire" and we certainly are.

Unfortunately, not everyone in Berkshire County has family to be with on Thanksgiving. Likewise, there are many Berkshire residents that cannot afford to put together a Thanksgiving dinner as food insecurities continue to rise in the southern Berkshires. In addition, the price of turkey has doubled since last year.
