  • Yep. I am the Assistant Director of our Food Bank, so I get to see first hand how grateful some people are for the help. I give EVERY month. We had out over 120 units of food every month! And several more on the mid-month smaller shipment! I really do enjoy the work.

  • Yes, usually when my company has barrels out for collection.

  • Yes. We usually go through all our canned goods once a month and what the kids havent eaten we donate. Most of the time I try and donate to the womens shelter though. They take food, clothes, toys, diapers etc.

  • Sometimes - unless I happen to personally know someone at that time that can use whatever I'm donating.

  • yes, it actually works really well were I live. The local grocery stores have prepackaged bags that cost $10.00. When I go shopping all I have to do is buy one of those and then they send it to the food bank once a week. At Thanksgiving I take my kids shopping and they each spend $10.00 buying food for the food bank.
