We get to choose what we want--1 meat and 10 other items. I chose and got:
*2 chicken leg quarters
*corn (for chickens)
*can of pumpkin
To give you an idea of my choices
Any of these meats:
*grilled chicken strips (pressed meat)
*chicken leg quarters
Ten of these: (I won't list what I chose and got above.)
The items in italics are things I might possibly get or things I have chosen before
*cheese slices *French fries *egg white omelets *mac and cheese
*crackers *corn meal *salt *tea bags
*grits *Vienna sausage or smoked sausage *Hamburger Helper
*jelly *cereal *rice (white) *ketchup *Miracle Whip or Mayonaisse
*mustard *salad dressing *hot sauce *evaporated milk *prunes
*ramen noodles *soup *tomato sauce *pickles *instant potatoes
*instant potatoes *dried pinto beans *corn *green beans *English peas
*mixed vegetables *pork and beans *Jello (reg or sugarfree)
*gelatin (reg or sugarfree) *Kool Aid *fruit drink *candy
*freezer pops * Cake mix *Frosting *baby formula *toothpaste
*shampoo *soap *Dove body wash *aluminum foil *Ajax cleanser
*dish detergent * toilet paper or paper towels
I get fewer items here, but I actually get more items I want and will use and that are not fattening. Plus, I don't get the food I do not deem unhealthful.
Some people say food banks don't give fresh produce. This one does. I got potatoes, peppers, and bell peppers.
An explanation: I never buy toilet paper and use washcloths. You have read that, and it is true. This I get free is for company or the unusual times that, for various reasons, I do use toilet paper. One reason I might use toilet paper is that there are no more wash cloths in the bathroom because I have not folded them.
Were you aware that some food banks give produce? Give people choices?
