It’s that time of year where families start preparing for their holiday traditions and lavish feasts.
While Thanksgiving is traditionally a day to give thanks for everything you have in your life, many people across the country who might otherwise not be able to partake are able to celebrate thanks to food banks and donations. In my area, a few weeks before the holiday, the boy scouts go door to door asking for neighbors to donate a few cans to help give someone an awesome Thanksgiving feast.
While most people donate whatever canned goods are cluttering up their pantries, many food banks still fail to receive the essentials necessary for comfort and well-balanced meals. To help ensure people are getting exactly what they need around the holidays, here’s a list of the 21 items donation drives really need but hardly ever get.
1. Soup Packets
Like canned veggies, these taste great and last quite a while.
Most food donations can be a bit bland. By donating spices, you can help those in need chow down on flavorful feasts.
