16 Items That Michigan Food Banks Would Love to Receive
Usually around the holiday season, people are in a very giving mood.
I for one am very appreciative of all that I have in my life, and around the holidays I'm reminded that there are others who may not have as much in their lives. I like to give back to those who might need help, as many people do.
Giving This Holiday Season
Dry goods and pantry items are always loved and appreciated. They tend to have a longer shelf life and can be stored without refrigeration, making them an easy item to donate.
And while pantry items like soups, mac and cheese, and canned vegetables are great items to give, there are some items that a food bank would love to receive that it rarely does.
