After a C-R-A-Z-Y stressful and not so great week, it felt good to make my first drop off to our local food bank for the Penny Experiment. I found out some great information- they accept all types of food and have plenty of storage for frozen and refrigerated products which will make stretching my coupon purchases a lot further. They also have drop off times throughout the week which will make it a lot easier to make deliveries.
I dropped off 38.8 pounds with a value of $101.67 that with coupons, I purchased for only $19.73! They had carts and boxes to make it easy to transport items from my car to their storage area. I was pretty impressed with the way things were set up and thought it was great how much food was available to those in need thanks to community members and local businesses.
My two year old son enjoyed helping me make the food bank purchases and delivery. I am happy to be able to use this experience to teach him about giving. Follow me as I contribute to donating a million dollars worth of food to local food banks with my participation in The Penny Experiment!
