Remember to put some canned goods in your mailbox tomorrow. The National Assoc. of Letter Carriers will take all the donated goods to your local food bank. It's nationwide! What a cool concept...............

OK. 6 cans in the mailbox. That's all that would fit, at least with the NetFlix return. Actually, that's about all we have left in the cupboard. Time for a trip to the grocer's.

BTW, food banks are getting hit by a double-whammy right now. Summer is actually the highest-demand season for them (I always thought it was winter) b/c kids are out of school and aren't being fed 2 meals there, so families down on their luck are turning to the soup kitchens to feed their kids. Also, this year's farm bill hasn't been passed yet, and that's where food banks get federal subsidies. Add in the skyrocketing cost of food, and increasing unemployment, and they're being hit pretty hard. Here are a couple good articles summarizing the situation:
