Pasta Paydays and the likes, for your Food Bank!

Here is what I'm thinking, and why.

Just one night a month I volunteer with my hubby and group of awesome Putnamaniac friends at the Daily Bread Food Bank right here in Putnam.

Tonight the pasta shelves were pretty bare, although it was nice to see lots of fresh produce.

I started thinking and thought wouldn't it be great if a few local companies, with a handful or more employees, started something like "Pasta Paydays".

Each payday, they could each chip in some pasta, and then deliver to the Daily Bread or their local food bank.

Recently I heard of a local company here in Putnam (I think it is US Button, but I'm not 100% sure ~ they do a ton of fundraising for Daily Bread) that does Tuna Tuesdays. Another no brainer! Bring in a can of tuna on Tuesday when you can, and when you have enough, run it over to your local food bank.

What do you think? Do you have the gumption to get something simple like this started where you work? A little from a lot can go a long way!

I am a Putnamaniac that thinks Pasta Paydays and Tuna Tuesdays, and more, are GREAT!
