Twice Blessed - Donating Food Storage

Do you have cans or cases of food nearing expiration? Don't let it go to waste - donate it to a local food bank. Not only will you have had the peace of mind knowing that you had food available on your shelf, but you will also bless others who are now in need.

This would also be a good time to re-evaluate your family's likes and dislikes as you replenish your storage. I over-estimated how much chili my family would eat the last time I purchased an entire case. As the expiration date draws near, I'm making plans to make a donation to my local food bank before it expires. No guilt, no waste - twice blessed.

Thanks for the good-karma reminder. I do have some things nearing expiration, but more importantly, I bought a bunch of canned chicken that I don't care for. I'm sure someone else will be more than delighted to have it. I'll drop it off next time I'm in town! :)

This is very good advise! It helped me to get with it and donate the food items that I thought we needed, but never really used. It's a blessing for us and we hope the donation will be an even larger blessing to someone else.:)
