I read an article a bit back about how much food we Americans throw away. My cabinets, as I am sure yours, have some impulse buys. You buy them and then never eat them. The item has not expired, but it is just languishing in your cupboards. Well, I gathered mine up and took them to the local food bank drop off bin at my local grocery store.
I have cabinet space and someone has a component for a warm meal. All it takes is some effort and you can make a difference.
