Of course~ When my child was a toddler, we would go weekly ,so he could see how it benefits people who are less fortunate than him and I wanted him to appreciate what we have and that we share with others.
The local pantry we visited was called GAP~ God Always Provides.
I think the workers loved seeing him so much ;it was very uplifting for us as well!
And ~ IF you are thinking of giving to a food pantry,ASK what they really NEED ~this helps them TREMENDOUSLY! emoticon
Usually peanut butter or canned tuna as sources of protein are needed the most!

Yes, I have a husband that likes to buy things in bulk at Costco without trying them first. We end up with lots of things neither of us care for so it goes to the food pantry. I sure hope someone enjoys it.

Ok I have to confess that I have not ever donated to a food pantry before. However, a few days ago I was looking up ways to reward myself when I meet certain weight loss goals and one website said to donate the same amount of food in pounds as the pounds you lose. This really struck me as a great thing to do. So far I need to donate 7 lbs. of food!

Yes, but when Covid first appeared in NZ I put a considerable sum of money in my late Mum's home town's (where I originally come from) food bank's bank a/c as well as my current home town's food bank's bank account. That way they could get what they needed. I also did if for my Mum's home town's food bank in Mum's memory on her birthday, and again a couple weeks ago for Xmas. I also gave over 40 brand new presents to be distributed to needy children in the area. I got them all on really good specials through the year.

Yes. Due to the pandemic millions of people are out of work so, I may give my neighbors that are less fortunate food from time-to-time.

I did - then the food pantry near me became too selective. They wanted more fast and easy - I provided staples.
