Cut Down on Waste with Food Donations
What are Food Donations?
Food donations are any type of food item that you donate to a local homeless shelter, give to a school or church fundraiser, or give in some other way. Generally, donations of food are usually non-perishable items like canned fruits, canned vegetables, canned pastas, canned soup, boxed dry pastas, boxed macaroni and cheese dinners, and anything else that has a long shelf life and can be heated up easily for quick and tasty meals. These items are often found in many people’s pantries, as they are staples that can come in handy when you need to whip up a low-cost meal quickly.
How Do You Give Food Donations?
Food donations are very easy to give to the people in your community that need them. Many schools and churches conduct canned food drives, where you can bring in old, canned items from your pantry and give them to the organization. They will then dispense the food items to food pantries and homeless shelters. You can also go directly to a food bank or food pantry in your area, bringing you non-perishable items that you do not want. You can simply call them and find out their donation procedure, or look them up online to get more information. Donated food will be put to good use and saves the Earth from excess waste.
