12 Days of Giving #5

Upping the ante. This one is going to cost you- a little. Ready for the challenge?

Give to the food bank.

Over the holidays we usually have special dinners to prepare or attend. Even when money is tight, we try to have things that make the season special to the family. For years, the only time I bought Gherkin pickles was at Christmas. That $1 jar of tiny sweet pickles always signaled the start of the season to my daughter.

When you’re shopping this week, pick up one extra can of…something, and drop it into the food bank donation bin before you leave the store.

For every person who adds a comment to this thread, I’ll purchase an item for our local food bank. I also have the pick of my backlist in ebook for one commentor. Let me know what special food treat your family enjoys over the holidays.

Right now i know the grocery store is collecting for toys for tots but i’m not sure they have a food box. I’ll have to look.

Every year we make bunuelos, and tamales. All year the church we attend asks the parishers to donated food for our local pantry. So all year is the time for giving to those in need.

We just did a food drive at wor, and Friday we turned in 850 cans-I think I took a couple cans a day for two weeks. It is hard to carry a lot of cans when you ride the bus to work, so I hae to spread it out a bit.

We’re making chocolate graham toffee bark to share this Christmas :)

As for the food bank, both kids’ schools had food drives and the local library–we are very happy to support all of them generously. We are so thankful that we haven’t been in the position of going hungry, and want to help make sure other families won’t be either.
