February is National Canned Food Month

by Judy Ozment on February 2, 2019

Did you know that the month of February is Canned Food Month?

There are so many people in need.  You can help someone less fortunate by donating canned food to your local food bank.

There are plenty of places that will gladly accept your non-perishable items.  Your donation will help put a meal on someone’s table, how great is that!

Perhaps you are willing to organize a food drive at your place of worship, your school or at your work.

If you have non-perishable food in your pantry at home that you know you are not going to eat, don’t just let it sit there and eventually expire – why not donate it to someone who will put it to good use?  Plus you are clearing out space in your own home!

Some ideas to get you started:

  • You could make it a competition to see who gathers the most food.
  • You could get your neighbors involved, a quick way to gather a lot of food!
  • If you have recently lost weight you could donate the amount lost in food.  For example if you lost 20 pounds you could donate 20 pounds of food.
  • You can also donate money or your time.

I suggest searching the directory of food banks and more to find a location near you at FoodPantries.org.

Thank you for your generosity,
