Doing Good

It's Monday morning so we are back to work at our local food pantry.  We put out the call today for food donations and our community responded.  

Abigail went to work helping unload cars with donations and Frankie worked inside marking bar codes and circling food expiration dates.  

Some of the things we go through the most are spaghetti sauce, canned mixed veggies, canned spinach, canned potatoes, soup, mac & cheese, dried beans, canned pasta, and toiletries.  

Most food pantries can do the most good with cash donations because for $20 they can purchase food from local food banks at a dramatically reduced price.  In fact the cost of purchasing food from a food bank can be about one fifth of the sale price at the grocery store!  So with a monetary donation food pantries can purchase five times the amount of food for the same dollar value!  Just something to keep in mind, when you're wanting to help out!   

You shall do what is right and good in the sight of the Lord, that it may go well with you, and that you may go in and take possession of the good land that the Lord swore to give to your fathers.  Deuteronomy 6:18
