Food 4 Families is a food drive for Thanksgiving that is sponsored by NBC4. Donate non-perishable food and money to feed underprivileged families a Thanksgiving meal through an annual food drive in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.

Project Harvest was started in 1966 by a woman named Lillian "Ma" Greene who cooked Thanksgiving dinners in her own kitchen to feed her less fortunate neighbors. She went door to door in her neighborhood to collect food donations and then served Thanksgiving to 80 families. In 2006, Project Harvest was renamed Food 4 Families.
