Fines for damaged or lost items cannot be reduced.

What should I donate?
    * Healthy, non-perishable food
    * Items with intact, un-opened, packaging
    * Items with non-breakable packaging (no glass, please)
    * Food within the expiration date on the packaging
    * Food from your community or backyard garden


Get to know your neighborhood with the November Checklist, available here.
