How far north are you going? There appear to be quite a few in Flagstaff.

That is too bad. The church I donate to has a commercial size fridge and freezer. They are always grateful for any ad all donations. At Thanksgiving and Christmas they pass out frozen turkeys and hams at Christmas. The main food bank in Boston stocks them up each year.

How about discreetly asking around if there might be one or two families that would put it all to good use. The school would be a good place to start. They see kids every day that need a good meal.

When we'd move in the Army, we had plenty of notice, so we'd either eat it or give it away. I always gave stuff to the privates' families; they needed it the most.

I'd think you'll be eating some interesting combinations of food now, and we want recipes! LOL!

I do hope your move goes smoothly. It's kind of exciting, isn't it?
CCL, we're over the moon excited!
We've been talking and planning for this for more than three years...

I haven't had a chance yet to do all of my research, but believe you me GG, I'll hunt down "my kinda" food stuffs in our new locale.

I already found a couple who are from my hometown and have opened a ramen shop, EXCITING!

Yeah, tried this too Addie, no luck...
I think it will work out though, we've found a house to rent month to month and we will be able to take alot of our "stuff" up there ahead of time.
Full kitchen, YAY!!!

The food bank I volunteered at would accept home grown vegetables, dairy, fruits, anything they could get. We had a store donate almost 20 bottles of cream that were due to expire the next day. There were still about 14 of them left at the end of the day and I was allowed to bring them home. I made butter out of it all and froze it.

You'd think food banks would be falling all over themselves to get food now. Some of them are running out since so many people lost their food stamps.

Also it is approaching summer and vacation time. Donations fall off but not the need. Then come Holiday time and the food banks are overrun with donations. Feast or Famine.

Lightbulb What To Do With All This Food?

So one of the items that I found in our freezer was a rather large package of previously fresh corn tortillas. Here in the middle of the desert, I can buy really fresh tortillas and then I freeze them for later consumption. With only 45 days to go to our big move to Northern Arizona, there is no way we were going to eat that many tacos...
DING!
Chips and Salsa for our afternoon snack!
