138 More Free Pillsbury Grands Biscuits Bought and Donated

I stopped by the two local food banks in my area when I realised that I could get Pillsbury Grands biscuits for free this week and asked the women that run them how many they would like. Tri-Valley Haven Food Pantry has limited refrigerator space and asked if I could bring 100 to her. Milpitas Food Pantry has more refrigerator space and said they could use up to 900. While I would love to be able to get than many for them, I am limited by time (I do have my full time job), the stock in the grocery stores and the number of coupons I have. My goal is to purchase and deliver 100 to Tri-Valley Haven Food Pantry and 300 – 400 to Milpitas food pantry this. If I can buy a total of 400 – 500 this week, then I will be happy even though the food banks could use more.

I already delivered 120 Grands biscuits to the Milpitas Food Pantry and I managed to get another 138 biscuit packages which I took to the Milpitas food bank again:

When I arrived at the food bank, there were a number of high school kids volunteering and they helped unload all the biscuit containers:

Once again, I did not have to pay any money to get these (this is how I did it):

I have delivered 258 of these to he Milpitas food pantry now meaning that I need to get another 142 for them and 100 for Tri Valley Haven by Tuesday when this deal ends. I think that I can pull it off. With this load, the readers and I have now donated a total of $19,613.32 worth of food to local food banks. I would love to get more people to participate. Not only will you be helping your local food bank, you will learn to save quite a bit of money on your own grocery shopping.

    What the food pantries REALLY need are spices (those are very expensive to buy), laundry detergent, dish soap, oil, shampoo, soap, toothpaste, cold and flu products, tylenol/aspirin , feminine hygiene products , first aid supplies and the like. I have been going to food pantries for the past 2 years and they are handing out a lot of carbohydrates, high fructose corn syrup products, and things in cans with salt (flour, rice, bread, pasta, sugar, canned vegs, processed meats, bakery goods). Rarely did I ever get eggs, whole grain products, organic items, fresh veggies. I am thankful that they are there but I have noticed the offerings are half of what they used to be and there are twice to three times as many people using the services. I give back when I can.
