I always donate cans, but last year I had sort of an epiphany. A can of soup will feed one person for one meal, maybe two. It seemed kind of pointless. So last year, I donated things like flour, sugar, and salt. I figure that even though you can’t eat these things instantly out of the package, you can use it to make food and it will last a long time.
Was that a good idea? I’m thinking of donating similar things this year.
