- Canned meats: Think beyond tuna & soup, which food banks get tons of. Instead, go for canned beef,
canned ham, canned chicken, canned salmon, sardines.
- Hearty ready-to-go meals like beef stew and chili with meat, cooked rice, lentils.
- Canned vegetables: Everyone donates green beans. Instead, give potatoes, carrots, spinach, peas, or any
other veggies your family likes.
- Canned fruit: Not pineapple. This is the most commonly donated fruit. Any other fruit, particularly those
in fruit juice without extra sugar, would be great. Dried fruit works too (raisins, cranberries, etc.)
