I always try and put a pasta of some sort, a tomato paste/soup/pasta sauce. Tin spaghetti and bake beans. Rice. Tin veg. A few baby foods if don't know there is a baby as Jic. Tin tuna. Vegimite. Long life milk. Weetbix or corn flakes depending on whst we have. Sometimes I have treat food like chocolates or biscuits I will include them.
Than the frozen bread/rolls/pull a parts . Butter. Cheese. And 1 pkt of sausages or mince if I have it.
Never anything out of date.
I am surprised that other churches do.
Edit these are families. The homeless we feed ready made meals from a van.
