We are officially mere weeks away from Thanksgiving, and I’m sure I’m not the only one who is feeling the panic set in. Are you going to bake pumpkin pie or pecan pie? Do you have time to make both? Which aunt has a nut allergy? Maybe you should make cookies instead … sorry, now I’m starting to stress myself out.

What you need on Thanksgiving is some help — and no, I don’t mean the kind that you get from your younger cousins who end up just making a mess. I’m talking about Hail Mary, home stretch, just-in-the-nick-of-time help that so often takes a holiday meal from disaster to triumph.

This year, Amazon will very generously deliver Whole Foods groceries right to your door on Thanksgiving Day (as long as you’re a member of Prime Now) in as little as one hour. The ways in which this offer will prove useful to you is basically infinite: Maybe one of your guests left his side dish at home. Maybe you forgot to buy cranberry sauce and your local grocery store is closed. Maybe you burned the crust on the apple pie to the point of no return. You’re going to need replacement food — and you’re going to need it fast. Because if there is one thing that is guaranteed to ruin a Thanksgiving dinner, it’s your hungry, cranky family. The people need their pie!

Now, I’m not saying that something will inevitably go wrong on Thanksgiving — I’m just saying there’s a very strong possibility. So instead of serving the soggy green beans that have been hidden in the back of your freezer for the past six months, let Whole Foods bring you fresh vegetables that you’d be proud to serve your family, and that your family will be happy to eat!

Don’t want to wait on delivery? You also have the option of picking up your groceries at a nearby Whole Foods. Prime Now delivery is available in 63 cities; you can find out if yours is one of them here.
