Donate Excess Food From Your Pantry or Freezer

My frugal self sometimes gets carried away with triple coupon offers and BOGO's. Then comes the day that I realize I have two large jars of mayonnaise, three bottles of ketchup, etc. Then there's the freezer with meats purchased in bulk and frozen leftovers. These items are still edible, but they really need to be used soon.


I can't bear wasting food, but knowing there is someone out there who could really use these extras gives me the boost I need to clean out. Our local food distribution center gladly accepts both frozen, perishable, and non-perishable foods. They even have a chute for dropping off the non-perishables after hours.

When we have leftovers from a party or a church function, the leftovers are taken to the homeless shelter or Loaves and Fishes where they are quickly and gratefully received and distributed.
