10 Things Food Banks Need But Won't Ask For
1. Spices.Think about it. People who rely on the food bank eat a lot of canned food, rice, oatmeal, white bread, etc. They love spices. Seasoned salt, cayenne pepper, chili powder, cumin, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, oregano, basil and so on.
2. Feminine Products.Can you imagine being worried about affording these? Pads, tampons, panty liners, etc. Recommended: Buy in bulk at Costco for donating.
3. Chocolate.People don’t need it, but think about being in their shoes and how nice it would be to be given a chocolate bar or brownie mix along with your essentials.
4. Toiletries.Grocery stores are great about donating surplus or unsold food, but they have no reason to donate toilet paper, tooth paste, soap, deodorant, shampoo, etc. Food stamps often don’t cover these.
5. Canned meats and jerky.This isn’t true of all food banks, but some struggle to give users enough protein.
6. Crackers and tortillas.They don’t spoil and everybody likes them.
7. Baby toiletries.Diapers, baby wipes, baby formula, baby shampoo, baby soap, baby food, bottles, etc.
8. Soup packets.Sometimes you look at rice, beans, instant potatoes, and cans of vegetable and think, “What do I make with this?” Hearty soup is a complete meal.
9. Socks.From a former homeless person: “Socks mean the world to you. They keep you warm, make you feel like you have something new, and just comfort you.”
10. Canned fruit other than pineapple.Food banks get a lot of pineapple donated. Their clients love it when other kinds of fruit are available.
Note from HP reader : "During cold weather we ask folks to donate warm clothing, such as coats, jackets, sweatshirts, etc. and blankets. Many of our neighbors will come to the food bank on a cold day in their shirt sleeves and they are always grateful to put on a warm jacket or coat as they leave."
