I like this idea from Mum in the Madhouse . 

I know, I know. It’s not perfect. Most food banks won’t even be open on Christmas Eve. Poor people need food all year long, not just the holidays. 

Both totally true. BUT  one could certainly adapt this idea to work better w/ the food bank schedule. Or even give it to a family you personally know who might be in need!

This would be a wonderful thing to do year round. Maybe during the summer months food could be kid- friendly to offset the loss of school meals?  

Whatever food bank you’re donating to, ask ahead of time what they need the most of. It’s good to think about other non-food items,too…. toilet paper, feminine hygiene supplies, razors,toothpaste,etc.
