From Cheese to Church

Filed under: Uncategorized — urbandumpsterdiver @ 2:39 pm

Found over 200 packages of that pre-shredded cheese. About 20% of it went to our food storage and the rest to the local food bank/church. This type of cheese is very convenient for families, but pricey. We use it in our cheese biscuit mix, pizzas, enchiladas, tacos, egg omelets, soups, chilis and too many other foods to mention.

Also found many containers of cottage cheese, cream cheese and other perishable items that had to go home or the food bank immediately. We got what they call fresh kill. It had just been thrown out as it was still very cold or frozen. That’s the best way to get it.

Last night on my way home decided to stop at a local haunt. Glad I did. What appeared at first to be three glad bags of trash were new merchandise thrown out. There was some broken glass i.e. candles, but the majority was good stuff. Several new pair of jeans, socks, T-shirts, children’s toys, a new MP3 speaker, soap, shower gel and candles. Some will go to the local charity and some to us.

I’m very grateful for the stuff we find. God has blessed me with a good sense of intuition and discernment. This allows me to follow my gut and usually it’s spot on. This helps needy families, helps us and keeps perfectly new items out of the landfill, where they would just sit and rot.

  1. What you do is the “American Way”. Helping others along the way. It is a shame that most people prefer selfishness and waste. I take great pride in knowing you!
