When we’re in the holiday spirit we often feel compelled to help out those in need. Usually before before Thanksgiving organizations start collecting and distributing food. Which is awesome!
Donating food is a great way to give back, but if you’re also using it as a time to empty out our pantry PLEASE CHECK THE EXPIRATION DATES! All too often I’ve prepared (and even received) items for distribution and over half if it had to be thrown out because it was well past the expiration date.
So please take a moment before you donate to make sure your donation won’t make anyone sick. If you won’t it it, don’t pass it on to someone in need.
