A charity pantry

I'm going to try something a bit different this year ... I've decided to set up a small "charity pantry." When I find good deals on items, I'm going to buy an extra or two and set them aside (as in far away from my regular pantry.) That way, I'll be sure to have something available for a food drive, or other charity drive.
Got the idea a couple of weeks ago when one of the supermarkets had canned vegetables on sale at 3/$1. I bought an extra half-dozen cans and put them aside.
Looks like they'll come in handy today: In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the museums in my city have a special admission price -- one canned food item per person.
