I just realized that I didn't post my November challenge yet. I went through my pantry and cupboards and took out everything that we wouldn't be able to eat before it expires. I also found items that would be good for Thanksgiving or Christmas. I planned on donating a can per day, but so far it ended up being 60 pounds of food. I find that when I donate food to others, it reminds me of how blessed we are to have enough to eat when there are so many others out there who don't have enough or struggle just to get by. I found out that our food bank can take items up to 1 year past the expiration date. So, even if you have some outdated food, don't throw it away. Check and see if you food bank will take it.
If you feel like you have the means, think about donating some cans of food you have to others in need. I find that we always seem to have plenty when we share with others.
