Food Bank Family Challenge

Yesterday at church the Sunday school children were passing out bags for the food bank. What a great reminder for teaching my own kids about the value of sharing with our neighbors in need!  As a goal for our whole family this week, we are going to keep this brown grocery bag on our kitchen counter and fill it up by next Sunday.  This also dovetails perfectly with the Money Savvy Kids program my son Bruce(7) is doing at school.

One of the things I have learned about food banks in the past, is that personal care products such as shampoo and soap are some important things to donate too. That’s because you can’t use food stamps to buy things like toilet paper. Since my two year old loves anything to do with toilet paper, sending Jenna to the upstairs bathroom to collect a few extra rolls for the bag is a good way for her to help out too. Hopefully Jenna doesn’t unroll anything by the time she comes back.
