Peyton Manning's PeyBack Foundation will distribute 2,000 Thanksgiving dinners, 1,000 each to to Denver and Indianapolis.

Peyton Manning threw for 12 touchdowns in November, which means I'm getting ready to donate 72 cans to my food bank later today.

That's humbling in and of itself, but it's even more humbling when you consider what Manning is doing this Thanksgiving.

Peyton Freaking Mannning. This Thanksgiving, I'm thankful for PFM. Press release from Peyton's PeyBack Foundation below.

The PeyBack Foundation is proud to continue its tradition of providing meals for families this Thanksgiving holiday and will do so for the third consecutive year in 2014. The foundation is pleased to announce the distribution of 1,000 dinners each in Denver and Indianapolis to mark its largest distribution ever.

The 2,000 total dinners will be able to feed nearly 20,000 people this Thanksgiving. Each meal, which can feed up to 10 people, includes a pre-cooked turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, rolls, vegetables and a pumpkin pie from King Soopers.

The Foundation selected the 1,000 families in Denver through various community agencies, and each family has been given a voucher to redeem at their local King Soopers.
