Second Chance Pantry...
The winter hours for the second chance pantry are from 2 to 3 pm on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month. The pantry will not be open on December 25th - instead it will open on December 18th.

Second Chance Pantry is a place where people in our community can get food that may have gone unwanted. According to reports Americans throw out 40% of their food. A lot of this because people are confused by what is commonly known as “Food Dating”.  (Sell by Date or Best if Used by Date etc.)

As part of her Gold Award project, Sarah Brister is soliciting donations of unwanted canned food for distribution at the pantry.   You can help Sarah with this project by taking a few moments to go through your pantry and passing along the canned food that you are not planning to use.  Sarah will verify that the items are safe for distribution and get them right out to those in the community who choose to use them.  Donations will be accepted on an ongoing basis.

Did you know....

.....that canned foods like tomatoes and citrus foods will keep for 1 and ½ years? Other foods like meat, fish, and vegetables will last for 5 years.

..... Mayonnaise only has a short shelf life if it’s been unopened, and stored in your pantry?  It only lasts about 1 week after the use by date.

......white rice when stored properly can last for years! Brown rice has a shorter shelf life, lasts about 6 months.

More information can be obtained from the USDA (United States Dept. of Agriculture)
