Helping the food banks

A thought if you're participating in a food drive for your local charities....

Please consider donating some source of protein (beans, tuna, canned meats) if you can. Seems many food banks have been hit hard by the recent recall in peanut products. Peanuts are an inexpensive source of protein, and many banks relied on those products ... especially now that demand has gone up.
