This weekend is the Stamp Out Hunger , letter carriers food drive.
Here are some tips to make your donations go as far as possible:
It may be awhile before your food is sorted so please donate items that do not need to be refrigerated before being given out.
Breakable items tend to break and squishable items like bread had to get squished so make sure your packaging is sturdy.
You might love sardines and other Specialty Foods, but we don’t know what the people who are receiving the food will like. Common and traditional food are the best donations because they can be given out to most anyone.
Donating things may make you feel really great and it is a good opportunity to clean out your cabinets of food that you fight but me never eat. With that in mind, please check the expiration dates on your food because we cannot donate food that has already expired.
