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.
If you are in the St. Louis, MO area you can find out more at:
For those of you outside of St. Louis just do a search for “food banks” in your area. You can also visit www.foodpantries.org to find a pantry as well.
Thank you for your generosity,
