February is National Canned Food Month
February is National Canned Food Month. Canned food is a great way to prepare for a natural disaster, as it has a long shelf life when stored at the correct temperature. It's also an easy way to make cooking a lot faster with products like crushed tomatoes and diced chicken. Plus, it's an inexpensive way to get out-of-season produce.
While homes can certainly use canned goods, another place that needs them is your local food pantry. Food pantries can help low income families make it to their next paycheck without missing meals. Some foods come ready to eat, which is helpful for folks who don't have access to a stove or kitchen. Consider donating your time, efforts, or money to a local food charity. Money is often better for food charities because they can buy things at a wholesale rate, which means they get more for the money than you would in a grocery store.
If you'd prefer to donate goods, here are some common things that food banks need:
- peanut butter
- canned tuna and chicken
- shelf-stable milk and substitutes
- 100% juice
- low sodium soups
