Packing up your dishes is one thing; packing up your food is another thing entirely. There is a lot to think about as your move day approaches but making a list of everything you have in your fridge, freezer and pantry will help you plan meals and use up your food. Focus on using foods that will spoil and can’t be donated. Donatable foods include items such as pasta, baby food, dry beans, flour, cereal, oatmeal, juice, rice, peanut butter & jelly, crackers, cookies. Canned goods such as vegetables, fruits, stews, beans, and tuna are all perfect contributions.
Another tip? Try to avoid bulk buying at the grocery store in the days leading up to the move.
As moving day approaches, set aside your unopened, non-perishable food items rather than boxing them up. Jay’s is a member of a charity called Move for Hunger, so our crew will pack up that food in boxes labelled Move for Hunger and deliver it to the local food bank for families in need.
Move for Hunger is a win-win charity. It lightens the load of our customers who are relocating and at the same time, it reduces food waste and helps fight hunger. Since joining Move for Hunger in 2018, Jay’s has donated thousands of pounds of food to help hunger across Saskatchewan.
