I know you have a ton of canned food left over from stocking up for Hurricane Irene-
Why not put the cans to good use and donate them to one of our favorite charities:
Food Bank For New York City recognizes 28 years as the city's major hunger-relief organization working to end food poverty throughout the five boroughs. As one of the country's largest food banks, our mission is to end hunger in New York City by organizing food, information and support for community survival and dignity. As the city's hub for integrated food poverty assistance, the Food Bank tackles the hunger issue on three fronts — food distribution, income support and nutrition education — all strategically guided by its research.
There are 3 million New Yorkers who experience difficulty affording food
