Do you donate? What foods do you donate?

We buy things that we eat and love and donate those items. I buy pasta, sauce, canned veggies, brownie mixes, cookies, hot cocoa, mac and cheese, pancake mix, maple syrup, soups, peanut butter, pudding, stuffing, ...

I say if you are going to donate, donate something good. I used to volunteer at a food bank and we got SO much gross, old, expired food in. :(

 The school has a food drive. Then they take it to the food bank. I donated to that. Then the mail collects food too. I give to that.

Oh yeah that's right. I forgot the mail collects. Well if my dd's school doesn't collect than I'll wait for the mail carries to.

 I just don't like to give too much to them, because they have to carry it back to their trucks.

We actually geta Christmas basket from our local Elks lodge every Christmas! They give Olivia clothes and gifts, all new. They also give us a gc to grocery shop and then a basket with sweets, meats and tons of canned goods. If there is anything we can or do not eat I will donate that and I donate pasta, cans, etc when we can afford it!

Yes.  The school just had a drive and they sent out a list of what they wanted so we took the list to the store and bought just about everything they asked for.

We do thanksgiving baskets for some of my patients that need it. We donate all kinds of things to make them dinner for thanksgiving and otherwise

I also donate to the mailcarriers one and the boyscouts anytime they have one. I just go thru my cabinets and donate whatever i can.
