While it’s a great idea to use up as many of the perishables as you possibly can before moving out, there’s a good chance you still have a lot left when the day finally arrives. Regardless of the time of year, your local food bank will be more than thrilled to receive these items. They will give them to the needy, ensuring something good comes out of them.

Your local food bank can benefit greatly if you donate these products to them.
