Finding your Local Food Banks

Do you have lots of CVS/couponing overflow? Enough toothpaste to maintain the dental health of your entire county?

Please consider your local charitable organizations and food banks! Especially in times like these, your donations are all the more welcomed and needed.

Here is a general link to find your nearest food bank across the U.S. (see the lower right hand corner for a locator):
