HURRY -- You may have time!

TODAY is the US Post Office's canned food drive. This is one of the largest food bank-fillers nation-wide.

To participate, just put your donations next to your mailbox and they will pick them up!!

How does this relate to preparedness??? You MUST rotate your preparedness food supplies to ensure that your foods have not been expired for YEARS when you need them. Go through your storage and pantry now to donate any food that will expire in the next 3 to 6 months (unless you are in the path of the floods --you may need it before then!) If you are comfortable enough in your food storage, throw in a few cans that are farther out, especially protein items like beans and canned fish.

PLEASE do not donate food with a 'best by:" date that has passed.

Now go do it!!
