Parade of Cans

This is just over 40 pounds of food that I will be donating to the Westchester Food Pantry this morning. I feel really good about this. I like the idea of giving back. I was thinking that this is something I could do all the time. Why not buy an extra something every time I go to the store and at the end of the month, take a box full of food up to the food pantry? I think that sounds like a great idea. Thank you to my girls at the Sisterhood for another great challenge.
As far as this being a weigh in day, I've stayed the same since Saturday. I can live with that.

  5. You've reminded me of the most important part of life and of the season... GIVING! Thank you for this most important post. We have the Rhode Island Food Bank and this year is a year of particularly difficult hardships. My bags have begun!

  6. Ok girl, I am up for this challenge too. I want to start me a box too. I watched the Biggest Loser last night and was so impressed by the back packs they filled up to give to needy children who might go hungry on weekends.

  8. I like your idea of picking up just one extra item every time you are at the store for the local food pantry. I think I'll have to give that idea a try too :)
