(However, it is not to late for those of you in New York to head to Orient to load up at The Candyman. They have been making fresh, homemade candies there on site for over 30 years. If you go, please buy me a bag of Dark Chocolate Chunks!)
Second, for this year, to offset some of the sugar I will be passing out (along with eyeball erasers) I am going to take some nutrient dense foods like various dried beans, nut butters, canned low sodium tomatoes, brown rice, raisins and dried apricots, boxed nut milk to my local food pantry.
Maybe you could do the same?
Check with your local pantry about donating nut products and perishable items. Some pantries, like one of my favorites in New York, also take fresh foods, such as apples, oranges, and root veggies.
What's that song? Trick or Treat, Trick or Treat, Give me something good to eat? Let's do it. And so, in light of your support to treat as you trick, this The Red White and Food is for you!!!
I want to give another The Red, White and Food shout out to my sister-in-law, Robin, for organizing a soup sale last weekend with all the proceeds going to needy families. Way to go girl!! xoxoxox
