“Food donation advice?” and “Resources for Homeless Population”

“Dear PoPville,

It seems like most food pantries are requesting cash donations, which makes sense. But does anyone have advice on where I can donate a few bags of non-perishable items (pasta, beans, vegetables, etc.)? I’m moving long-distance and clearing out my pantry; I’d hate for it to go to waste with so many in need at the moment.”


“Are there some resources for how we can support the homeless population? I’m wondering whether there are ways to support them that don’t require close contact with others. My boyfriend is high risk so we avoid most human contact.”
