The senior brown bag and box



Last week we signed up for the senior brown bag and box here in our city. We were picking it up for our 80 yr old friend who doesn't drive and was told we qualified as well.  We're seniors and my husband is a retired veteran. Wow. So they gave us a box and a brown bag and it had a lot of food. We were shocked. 

Now I know where my other friend got all the potatoes and yogurt - she gave to us. Now she'll have to find someone else. 


We received: 

tomatoes and tomato sauce

canned pears

black beans

green beans

1 gallon of 2% milk

1/2 gallon of chocolate milk

4 pork chops

1 lb of ground beef

1 chicken

2 cans of tuna fish

red potatoes

onions

carrots

oranges

apples

strawberries

pears

yogurt

sour cream

oreo cookies

2 boxes of Cheerios (my husband's favorite)

pepper jack cheese slices

elbow macaroni

spaghetti noodles

rice


We plan to stockpile some of the food - and what we don't use, or need or like - we will pass it on to the Loaves and Fishes food bank for the homeless. 

Yesterday I made a sour cream potato salad with the red potatoes (skin on) We'll eat that tonight with our Costco Hot dogs - the only ones I will eat. 

All of this will really help us out.
