Top Items to Donate to Your Food Bank

When we started our coupon challenge for the North Gwinnett Co-op,  we were given a list of the top food items that they need for their clients.  Visitors to the Dusty Wallet website have asked about the best items to donate to local food banks, so we wanted to share the list with you:

Peanut Butter


Pasta Sauce


Canned Fruits



Boxed Meals (includes Mac n Cheese, Hamburger Helper, etc)

Canned Meats

Canned Vegetables

Canned or Dried Beans

Many of these foods are mature brands with limited coupon availability.  But when there are coupons, sales, and other deals on these items, please buy extras for your local food pantry.

Also check our Dusty Wallet website each week for the best sale items to purchase for your local food bank each week.  We post the top sale items that we are buying at Publix and/or Kroger each week!  If we all buy just a little extra food for our local food banks, just think what a large impact we can have on the community!
