I just got a note from the post office saying they will be picking up food donations left beside the mailboxes this Saturday. A couple of times a year they do this for the local food banks. I like to use some time preceding to go through my pantry and get rid of anything getting close to it's expiry date (though not passed it - I don't think that is fair). It helps others, it makes me feel good and it keeps my pantry current so if anything does happen, earthquake or whatever, I'm not stuck with out of date food. What do other BYCers do?
