How many of us bought some canned goods, not too long ago and haven’t gotten around to cooking with them yet, so you risk maybe not ever really using them? I can count myself in that group, for sure. So, tomorrow, I’m taking some time to go through my pantry and take out the items that I know I can part with in order to donate to people who are in need. Did you know that for a lot of children, the only meals they get are those they receive at school? Giving some of your non-perishables could actually help those children have more than just one or two meals a day.
Not sure what sort of items qualify as non-perishable and will be accepted by the Letter Carriers? Here’s a few:
- Cereal, Pasta, Macaroni & Cheese, and Rice
- Canned Fruits and Veggies
- Canned Tuna, Chicken, Turkey and Beans
- Canned Soups, Chili or Pasta
- Peanut Butter
- 100% Juice
