2014: Donate to your Food Bank

25 Days of Kindness Food Bank

Welcome to 25 Days of Kindness, 2014 Edition.

I love Thanksgiving. I love the food in particular: turkey, gravy, mashed sweet potatoes, orange rolls. It’s a great day to celebrate abundance.

It’s why I felt kicking off my 25 Days of Kindness project with a donation to the Food Bank was so appropriate. I am thankful for so much in my life and am grateful to have the luxury of a hot meal every single night. Many aren’t as fortunate. I have donated money in the past directly to the homeless. Sometimes I still do. But I find myself leery of this more and more and worry that the money is not actually going where I intended and that I can do far more good by donating to those who have the resources to reach the hungry.

I am also grateful that our grocery store has a way to donate to the Food Bank directly from the store. I know that cash donations can sometimes be more valuable than food directly. They know what is needed and are much better at managing resources than I am (trust me!!).

Here are some great resources about donating specific items to the Food Bank:

I’ve also included the Food Bank locator here from Feeding America.

I look forward to sharing this month’s journey with you once again!
