So you bought too much stuff in preparation for Hurricane Lane. Well, good on you for being well-prepared. Rather than suffer from the indignity of an over-stuffed pantry or ponder taking the goods back to the store, how about simply dropping off those non-perishable food items at your local foodbank? Peanut butter, crackers, Spam, canned tuna, all items that are surely needed by those helping out people in need.
Canned vegetables, canned meat or canned fruit, apple sauce, cooking oil, granola bars, nuts, rice, stew, chili, soup- lots of things you might actually be able to do without but all of which will surely find a happy home in someone's stomach through the foodbank. Not only would you be clearing out your shelves and answering the what-am-I-gonna-do-with-all-of-this stuff question, but you'd actually be making a big difference locally.
