Early in the Take Back Tour ministry, I wrote an article called What’s In Your Donation Box (http://www.thetakebacktour.com/uploads/2/1/3/8/2138124/whats_in_your_donation_box_2007.pdf). The main point was and still is that healthy food that tastes good should be part of every church pantry or donation center. It should also be part of every donation we make to any organization collecting food to help others. Just because some one needs some assistance, does not mean they deserve unhealthy food. See the article for suggested healthy items and brand that are Y.A.A.H ( Yummy-Affordable-Available-Healthy). Buy 1 for yourself and 1 to donate and improve the health of your pantry as well. Pick an item or 2 when on sale. Stay tuned for sales, coupons and deals. Here are some recent deals I have recently observed to help improve the health of not only your pantry, but improve the quality of the donations you share with others.
We all remember the words of Acts 20:35: I have shewed you all things, ... remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive. But let’s not forget the words of Galatians 6:7: Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
Remember to share goodness and not keep it to yourself. Give love and health and reap the blessings of love and health. As always SHARE-SHARE-SHARE.
