Y2K Threat Is Over, But Stockpiled Food Can Feed the Hungry
While most people would be too embarrassed to admit now in the new year that they were actually concerned enough over the Y2K threat to stockpile food, these individuals who filled their basements with cans of artichoke hearts and vegetarian refried beans can make use of these products by donating them to food pantries around the area. In fact, St. Anne's Roman Catholic Church is currently planning a mid-January food drive. Every month St. Anne's asks their parishioners and the community to collect canned and boxed food with a long shelf life and bring it all to the church so that they may deliver it to a food pantry here on Long Island or bring it to a collection center for the victims of war and disaster abroad. This would be the perfect opportunity to relieve the Y2K overcrowding of home pantries and do some good for the hungry.
