http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/29021845/ apparently a lot of the stuff donated is peanut butter related and has been recalled which has made them short on feeding the needy.. ordinarily i would say we all need to pitch in and donate to them but since a lot of people i know cant afford their own food it makes me really worry.. food banks are always low as is and now they are having to return a lot of it because of stupid recalls.. does any one have any ideas on how we can some how help the food banks?? its so sad

Well, you can try by going to all the bakeries at the end of the day. See if they are gonna be throwing out any left over bread. A lot of the high end bread shops will usually throw away their left over bread for the day to maintain a certain quality of freshness in their products. You can do a one off collection everyday and deliver them to the food banks. These breads are still good for consumption. They are maybe a little dry which will fail the food quality control of these bakeries. So that is a good start.

I'm on foodstamps, yet I always manage to save a couple of dollars for the food bank. It means I give up junk food for the most part, although I brought lots of chocolate for the libary fundraiser today. I also keep cupons that I don't use for soup, which I hate, and buy those things for the food bank.
