A Can of Empty Carbohydrates

Emergency Food Network dropoff can full of macaroni and cheese boxes
March was Food Shelf week in the Twin Cities. As I've written before, if you want to support your food shelf or food bank, it really is best to give them money because they can get more for it than you can. And they can buy produce or meat -- things you can't just drop off whenever.

But if you want to donate food.... please, no more macaroni and cheese. Everyone thinks it's popular with kids, and it may be, but empty carbs are not what people need.

This entire drop-off can I saw recently appears to be full of (mostly Kraft) macaroni and cheese. Even that white bag on top is full of blue boxes.
