One of my supervisors at work is found this list on the website of the local food bank. I'm sure it would be a good guideline for all food banks, which are constantly in need.
Most-needed food items:
Rice (brown and/or white)
Soymilk or other shelf stable milk
Tomato sauce, paste, stewed, or diced
Macaroni & Cheese
Holiday food items:
Toothpaste & brushes
If you want to donate to your local food bank, using items from OLA, here are a couple of suggestions!
Soap from one of our newest sellers, Latherupsoap!
And from our very special seller Draggontagger, a Soap Sock! An easy way to grip your soap, and great to use when you are down to the little slivers!
