On Fridays, we often open for limited hours to distribute overabundant, fresh food (to members only).
Sometimes there are just too many bananas, or hot peppers, or bottles of water!
Even after distributing these items to our members throughout the week, even after sharing with other charities and churches, we still have an over-abundance. When this happens we throw open the warehouse doors to our members on Friday mornings and ask them to take even more of the things that won't last over the weekend.
Often this can be an entire box of plantains or commercial size bags of onions. It's a great opportunity for members to stock their freezers or line their shelves with home-canning.
