DesMoinesRegister.comGaps: Toss those outdated foods - don't donate them

DesMoinesRegister.com: "They were probably more likely to be museum pieces than food items, which is why the nun kept them by her desk. Sister Sandra Rodemyer, the heart and soul of the Des Moines Area Religious Council Food Pantry, had messaged a couple of weeks ago with news, but when I called back she was too busy to chat. It was the day before Thanksgiving and she had little time for cellular conversation.

'Everyone in Des Moines decided to show up with food today,' said Sister Sandra. It seems the Thanksgiving spirit moved the multitude in the community to give in advance of the big feast. Not all of it was up to snuff."
