Thanks Giving, concerning food drives

There's a time to be frugal and a time to spend a little more, in the case of food drives more is better. Our Lord reminds us in Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

It saddens me whenever there is a food drive most people get rid of the unwanted junk in their pantries or overload the food banks with cheap foods like corn and green beans. These foods are great but if everyone gives the cheapest the poor and hungry are out of a decent meal. Have you ever lived off cold cans of corn and green beans for a week? Would you want your children to live that way? Of course not! That's why when you give be a little more considerate to the hungry, they need meats like tuna, beef stews and chicken and fruit juices too. Just think of the non-perishables you eat and its likely what they eat. Look for coupons to save on your donation items.
